The Redskins signed safety Ryan Clark to a one-year deal Monday, according to multiple reports.

Clark, who spent the last eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, played for the Redskins in 2004 and 2005. In 2013, at age 34, Clark produced one of the best seasons of his career, posting a career-high 104 tackles with two interceptions.

Washington’s signing of Clark, along with their re-signing of Brandon Meriweather two weeks ago, adds stability and security to the team’s weakest position.

Clark’s departure from Washington following an appearance in the divisional round of the 2005 playoffs was an unpopular one. In his two seasons with the Redskins, the fan favorite logged 138 tackles, two forced fumbles and three interceptions.

Meanwhile, former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson arrived at Dulles Airport this afternoon among a sea of local reporters before his meeting with Redskins officials.

Jackson is set to dine with head coach Jay Gruden and other coaches tonight and will go through meetings on Tuesday, according to Comcast SportsNet’s Chick Hernandez.


Two free agent targets on that were on the Redskins radar signed elsewhere Monday.

Wide receiver Kenny Britt, who visited with the Redskins on March 18th signed re-united with former head coach Jeff Fisher and signed with the St. Louis Rams.

Meanwhile, former Redskins cornerback Carlos Rogers, who spent the last three seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, signed with the Oakland Raiders today. Reports linked Rogers to the Redskins early on in free agency after he was released by San Francisco.
