Tress Way and Nick Sundberg compete at table tennis club

BY TYLER BYRUM

It has just been over a week since the Washington football team came up short in Week 17 in a winner-take-all game against the Giants and two Redskins are already competing in a new sport.

Both punter and long snapper, Tress Way and Nick Sundberg ventured to a local table tennis club last week, Smash Table Tennis in Herndon, Virginia, and competed in a nightly league. Also playing with them was Triple A baseball player Jason Troilo.

Apparently both were pretty good. 

Washington Redskins players Tress Way and Nick Sundberg came out for some league and to play some friendlies at Smash...

Prior to the season, there were many disgruntled fans and media members that were upset with the new 'distraction' that the organization put in the locker room this past off-season. It even got to a point where there was even a locker room leader-board with rules posted, where (guess who) Way and Sunderberg sat atop the ladder respectively. 

It appears the extra practice has paid off for the pair. At the club Way finished at the top of his group winning all six matches and only dropping five games the whole night, Sundberg ended up winning three matches out the five he played.

No word on if the duo plans to return, and Way defend his group title although it would be pretty sweet to go up with a NFL player.

Former Redskin D.J. Swearinger pays tribute to Sean Taylor with new tattoo

Former Redskin D.J. Swearinger pays tribute to Sean Taylor with new tattoo

D.J. Swearinger may have had short, yet quite eventful, two-year tenure in Washington, but he may have just endeared himself in the hearts of Redskins fans forever. 

The former Washington free safety recently inked a new tattoo paying tribute to one of the best free safeties and Redskins legend in Sean Taylor. Swearinger was signed in the offseason heading into the 2017 season before starting all 31 games he played in the Burgundy and Gold. 

He made eight interceptions, 132 tackles, and one Pro Bowl appearance as a part of Greg Manusky's secondary. Now, he cemented a roster spot on the New Orleans Saints -- the third time he's switched teams in two years following his release from the Redskins. 

Taylor was killed in a 2007 armed burglary and remains a fan favorite of Redskins fans everywhere.

Joe Burrow has small hands AND a big sense of humor

Joe Burrow has small hands AND a big sense of humor

Seeing that Joe Burrow is a potential No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, it makes sense that all eyes are on him. However, the attention right now is centered around only one part of him: his hands.

According to ESPN, the LSU quarterback’s hand measurements came in at nine inches, making Burrow’s hands the smallest of any first-round quarterback the NFL combine has seen since 2008.

While followers of the NFL draft and sports fans alike grappled with this statistic, Burrow took to Twitter to joke about the reaction to this information being released.

Burrow’s dash of humor was received well by Twitter users, with many people replying with praise of him and his response to this potentially touchy situation.

Burrow may have small hands, but he certainly compensates with his big sense of humor.
