It’s a good time to be a car owner.
Gas prices have dropped significantly within the last couple of months letting drivers hit the highway without having to worry about their bank accounts taking a big hit.
Quarterback Kirk Cousins is the most recent beneficiary after posting this sub-$2 dollar gas price listing as he road-tripped home.
Of course, he wasn’t the only one who began to drive home after cleaning out his locker.
Punter Tress Way took some time with the media before leaving to discuss his plans for heading back to the Midwest.
“First thing is I’m going home,” Way said. “I miss my family and miss my friends. We’ve got a 21 hour drive back to Oklahoma, so we’ve got to stop somewhere at a little sports bar and grille and watch the Oklahoma-Clemson game. Other than that, it’s pedal to the metal heading home…maybe stop in at Nashville. I’d like to hear some live country music, maybe some chicken fried steak.”
Way then followed up to clarify who would be driving.
“[My wife will] do a lot of sleeping. She’s a great shotgun rider,” he said. “I’ll reach over and hold her hand, but she is knocked out. I’ll be listening to some music, podcast and stuff like that.”
As for others…
Linebacker Will Compton spent some time in the passenger seat responding to fans on Twitter but had to sign off once it was his turn to drive en route to Nebraska.
Tight end Je’Ron Hamm, who was signed yesterday to a Reserve/Future contract, spent most of his day driving, too.
Linebacker Jackson Jeffcoat couldn’t waste any time after clearing out his locker. He was able to catch a flight into Houston so he could catch his alma mater, Texas, play in the Texas Bowl.
Cornerback Bashaud Breeland wasn’t as fortunate to have a plane ride at his disposal. On his way south through his home state in South Carolina there must not have been much to look at on the highway.
