On Monday, many Washington Redskins fans expected a busy day for the Redskins, but in a very different context. Instead of making the more flashy move, signing DeSean Jackson, Washington brought in and signed safety Ryan Clark. Clark spent the 2004-2005 NFL season with the Redskins and should bring veteran stability to a very shaky secondary. With the retirement of London Fletcher, Washington lacks a formal leader and management expects Clark to fill that void.
The 34-year old Clark has spent the last eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers and has shown great leadership to an always-solid unit. Although many around the League felt Clark lost a step in 2013, apparently the Redskins believe he has something left in the gas tank.
With the possible addition of DeSean Jackson, Clark could prove to a vital asset to the Redskins nucleus. Although the terms of the deal remain up in the air, Washington made a much-needed move adding Clark to the roster.
