It's been a good few weeks for Nick Sundberg. The veteran long snapper got a new deal done with the Redskins, ensuring he will remain in Washington and working with young specialists Tress Way and Dustin Hopkins.
Perhaps in light of the four-year contract, Sundberg took to Reddit to conduct an AMA. Talking with Sundberg at Redskins Park, he's an interesting, funny guy, and his Reddit performance delivered.

Q: What do you think of Gruden's offense compared to others you've played in? Also, his leadership as a HC
NS: I love his offense. We barely ever punted this year. More FG and PAT's are what I like.
Q: How do other players see long snappers? Do they see you as a part of the team as a Lb, rb or not?
NS: Its my job to make them see my value. We spend a lot more time together than just 4 hours on Sundays so thats where I create relationships. The weight room is huge for me. When guys see you working hard all the time, you become one of them. Regardless of position.
(Being in the locker room each day, Sundberg is definitely part of the team.)
Q: So is a hot dog a sandwich or not?
NS: Such a debated question. Meat between two pieces of bread is a SANDWICH. Plus i put mayo on my hotdogs so...
Q: Being a snapper doesn't it scare you that some dude is getting a running start while you have your head down?
NS: You get used to it. But since they can't line up over the top anymore they just come from the right or left. It is what it is and comes with the job.
Q: How do you feel about Kirk not getting signed yet? do you think it has more to do with FO or Kirk's Agent or both? I know he is gunning for the best contract possible, but what's the hold up as far as you know?
NS: Pretty sure he's down in Houston. But deals that big take time. Be patient.
(‘Skins fans aren’t great at being patient)
Q: Nick, would you ever let Tony Romo be your holder and why not?
NS: No, history repeats itself. I want a guy who wants to be there. Tress is one of the best in the biz.
Q: Console or PC? Favorite game?
NS: Grew up a PC guy playing Starcraft and Diablo so when they brought Diablo 3 to PS3 I was all in.
(I know what a PC is, and I know what a PS3 is, but that's it for me)
