The Redskins were busy Thursday. And it’s possible they’ll be just as busy today as the first week of NFL free agency winds down.
Here’s what we’ll be monitoring:
- Veteran safety Ryan Clark met with coaches and management at Redskins Park on Thursday but did not immediately sign a deal. In an exchange on Twitter with Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, Clark wrote this about his visit to Ashburn: “No doubt. It was good man. They seem to have a good plan for me. Now the money guys have to work.”
- Defensive end Anthony Spencer also visited. Having already signed Jason Hatcher, will they get another former Cowboy today? Hatcher and Spencer have the same agent, Dallas-based Jordan Woy. Spencer, 30, had 11 sacks in 2012 but was limited to one game last season after undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee.
- Tight end Owen Daniels is also reportedly scheduled to visit Redskins Park after arriving in town Thursday night. Daniels, 31, is a pass-catching threat who would replace Fred Davis and give the Redskins another dangerous tight end to pair with Jordan Reed. Daniels missed 11 games last season because of a fractured fibula.
- Cornerback Brandon Browner, formerly of the Seahawks, is also on Washington’s radar. At 6-4, 221-pounds, the 29-year-old would certainly add size to the Redskins’ backend. But he’ll miss the first four regular season games and will be fined another four game checks due to a PED suspension.
- The team also reportedly has interest in another former Seattle cornerback, Walter Thurmond. He had been scheduled to visit today, but it’s possible the Redskins’ deal with Tracy Porter will affect that. Should have an update later.
As the marketplace shifts, plans will change and new names will emerge. So stay tuned as Day 4 gets underway.
