You better get out of Tress Way’s way when he’s practicing his punts.
Joining the Redskins yesterday as the team’s second punter on the roster, the other, of course, being Robert Malone, here’s video of Way booming a 70-plus-yard punt during his days at the University of Oklahoma:
Per Redskins Public Relations, Way (6-1, 215) originally entered the NFL as a college free agent with the Chicago Bears on April 28, 2013. He was waived by the Bears on Aug. 25, 2013. He later re-signed with the Bears on Jan. 1, 2014 before being waived on Aug. 18.
Way punted collegiately at Oklahoma from 2008-12, appearing in 53 games with 250 punts for 10,988 yards (44.0 avg.) with 36 touchbacks and 91 punts downed inside the 20. He owns Oklahoma’s school record with 71 career punts of 50 or more yards.
He was also a team captain at one point and, as this video from a local Oklahoma news outlet reports, was considered just as big of a weapon as the quarterback.
