There have been rumblings in the weeks leading up to NFL free agency that the Washington Football Team had interest in bringing back veteran K Dustin Hopkins, and it was made official on Monday afternoon.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Washington is bringing back Hopkins on a one-year deal worth $2.4 million, with over $1.8 million of that guaranteed.

This is interesting to note that it is only a one-year deal, simply because it feels like Hopkins has a lot to prove this coming season. He wasn’t spectacular in 2020, though he got better as the year went on. He finished the season making 27-of-34 field goals, with two missed extra points. It seems that on a one-year deal, Washington will hope that he can get back to the form he has shown throughout his career and earn another contract going forward.
