Nick Sundberg announces he won't be returning to Washington originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Washington will have a new long snapper in 2021 for the first time in over a decade.

On Wednesday, Nick Sundberg announced on Twitter that head coach Ron Rivera informed him that the Washington Football Team won't be re-signing him, ending an 11-season tenure with the club.

"Unfortunately Coach informed me that I’m not in the plans moving forward. I understand this is a business but I’m still sad to close this long chapter with the Washington Football Team. I look forward to the next opportunity in my career, wherever that may be. See you on Sundays." Sundberg wrote.

Throughout his decade-plus tenure with Washington, Sundberg was one of the most well-liked and respected players in the locker room.

While Sundberg rarely made a mistake on the field, perhaps where his biggest impact was felt was in the community.

In partnership with Washington's Charitable Foundation, Sundberg founded the Loads of Love program, an effort designed to install washers in dryers in homeless shelters to help boost school attendance for families with children. Sundberg was named Washington's nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award both in 2017 and 2019.

Following Sundberg's announcement, team president Jason Wright called the long snapper a "exemplary leader" and wished him well in his next chapter.
