Special teams (3)

P/H Tress Way, K Joey Slye, LS Camaron Cheeseman


Way, the longest-tenured Washington player, is back for Year 9, and if his 62-yard punt in the preseason was any indicator of the future, buckle up. Slye jumped in midseason last year after the Commanders cycled through two other kickers. He didn’t miss a field goal try in his six games, but in the preseason he missed an extra point and a 43-yarder.

Special teams coordinato­r Nate Kaczor said of Cheeseman, who’s entering his second season: “He is certainly in a mental space of not being a rookie anymore. . . . We’re not perfect yet, but he’s definitely improved, and consistenc­y is better. We thought it was pretty good last year being a rookie.”
