2014 NFL Free Agency: Washington Redskins sign Ryan Clark


Most of the news surrounding the Washington Redskins has centered around the possible acquisition of wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Jackson, who was released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, is visiting the Redskins.

On Monday, the Redskins added a veteran on the other side of the ball.

According to Chris Russell of ESPN 890 in Washington, D.C., the Redskins have agreed to terms with former Pittsburgh Steelers’ safety Ryan Clark.

Jason La Confora of CBS Sports, reports it is a one-year deal.


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.
