Yesterday, free agent safety Ryan Clark tweeted that he had enjoyed his visit with the Redskins and that it was up to the "money guys" to work out a deal to have him return to the team that let him go in 2006.
Apparently, the "money guys" aren't close to working things out.
Redskins fans only following me if I'm going to be a Redskin can unfollow me for now! Still treating me the way they always have. Never know— Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) March 14, 2014
It's easy to see how there could be major differences. Clark started 16 games and played almost every snap for a top-10 pass defense last year. The Redskins sure appreciate that but want to be cautions about giving too much money to a defensive back who is going to be 35 sometime around Week 6 of the coming NFL season.
This doesn't mean that Clark won't be a Redskin. Perhaps he will shop around for some other offers and see if the Redskins are trying to lowball him or if they are offering something around his market value. He could do that and call the Redskins back or he could end up signing elsewhere.
