Ryan Clark has reportedly agreed to terms on a contract that would bring him back to the Washington Redskins today. Multiple reporters have gotten confirmations from team sources to verify Clark's new deal. The team had him in for a visit two weeks ago, but Clark left without a deal. Sources close to the negotiations said that Clark and the team had serious differences of opinion about what a 34 year old safety is worth, now it appears they have come to a compromise on his value.
Clark entered the league as an undrafted free agent and was signed by the New York Giants. He played for the Giants for two seasons before being signed by the Redskins prior to the 2004 season. He played two seasons for the Redskins, and was ready to re-sign with the team, but got Archuleta'd. He went on to sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers and played there for the last seven seasons. Jason La Canfora reports that Clark will start immediately for the Redskins this season.
