Clark, who also reportedly had interest from the Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks, visited the Redskins, but was thought to be out of their price range.
After playing his first two seasons with the New York Giants, Clark joined the Redskins in 2005, spending two seasons in Washington. In 2006, he signed with the Steelers and was with the team for eight seasons.
Clark had 104 tackles and two interceptions for the Steelers in 2013.
