Update: 1-year, $2.5 million deal

Multiple people are reporting that the Washington Football Team is re-signing kicker Dustin Hopkins to a 1-year deal. Hopkins was expected to be one of a number of players hitting free agency that Ron Rivera wanted to bring back. Hopkins has been with Washington since 2015 when he replaced Kai Forbath early in the season.

Hopkins has made 151 FGs on 180 attempts(83.9%) over his 6 seasons in Washington. He has made 169 out of 178 extra point attempts(94.9%). Hopkins missed 9 kicks last season(7 FGs, 2 XPs), but the team never brought any competition in for his job. The details of this one year deal haven’t been reported yet. He signed a 3-year contract extension worth $7.45 million in 2018. This short deal doesn’t prevent the team from bringing in another kicker during the offseason.
