Redskins Sign Safety Ryan Clark

Redskins Sign Safety Ryan Clark

The Washington Redskins signed veteran safety Ryan Clark on Monday. Clark, 34, has amassed over 800 tackles and 15 interceptions in his 12 years in the NFL.

Clark played for Washington for two seasons in 2004 and again in 2005 (playing in 28 games) but has played the last 8 years for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The move gives the Redskins a veteran player who can add on the field and locker-room leadership, which the Redskins will likely be in big need of following the retirement of London Fletcher. It also gives the Redskins two starters now at the safety position with Clark at free safety, and Brandon Meriweather at strong.

The move came just a small time before the Redskins were/are expecting another free agent to visit town…former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Jackson was/is expected in town around 7:00 pm and is expected to stay into Tuesday. Details on the contract of Ryan Clark were not immediately available, but it’s rumored to be a one-year,vet minimum deal.
