WASHINGTON -- Long snapper Nick Sundberg has agreed to a four-year deal to remain with the Washington Redskins.

Sundberg on Sunday became the fifth Redskins player in two days to get a new contract and avoid free agency.

Left guard Kory Lichtensteiger signed a five-year contract, fullback Darrel Young and tight end Logan Paulsen each got three-year deals, and linebacker Rob Jackson also reached terms to stay with the reigning NFC East champs.

Sundberg has played three seasons in Washington and was set to become a restricted free agent when the free agent market formally opens Tuesday. He broke his left arm in the first half of last year's season opener but returned for the final seven games as well as the playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
