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...Posted by Smash Table Tennis on Friday, January 6, 2017
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.
