Ryan Clark's asking price too high for the Redskins

The Washington Redskins are looking to bolster their secondary, specifically at the safety position, but haven’t been able to do so yet. Most of the top safeties on the market have signed elsewhere and the two starters from last season, Brandon Meriweather and Reed Doughty, are free agents.

The Redskins reached out to Pittsburgh Steelers veteran Ryan Clark, but the 35-year-old’s asking price was too high.

From the Washington Post:

The team hosted veteran Ryan Clark on Thursday, but he left Redskins Park without a deal and on Friday it appeared talks had not progressed.

On Saturday, a person with knowledge of the situation said that Clark’s asking price exceeds the amount that Washington officials wanted to pay for the aging defensive back.

The Redskins saying someone’s asking price is too high means it must be really too high. If Dan Snyder’s staying away from it, something is wrong. There are serviceable free agents available though still though, including Meriweather and.
