Safety Ryan Clark returns to Redskins

- Associated Press - Monday, March 31, 2014

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Ryan Clark is returning to the Washington Redskins after the veteran free agent safety agreed to a deal Monday.

He was quickly welcomed by Robert Griffin III on Twitter, with Clark telling the franchise quarterback: "Let's go win a lot of games & have some fun!"

Clark visited the Redskins earlier this month after he became a free agent following eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Clark played in Washington in 2004-05, but the Redskins opted not to re-sign him and instead paid big money to Adam Archuleta, who became one of the top free agent busts in franchise history.

Safety has been a top priority for Washington this offseason. The 34-year-old Clark would also add leadership to a defense that is losing captain London Fletcher, who plans to retire.
