Dianna Russini of NBC Washington reports that the Redskins have agreed to a one-year deal with veteran S Brandon Meriweather.
- Russini adds that Meriweather will receive a one-year deal worth $1 million next season.
- John Keim of ESPN.com has confirmed the report.
There was some talk that Meriweather could be back with the Redskins next year, despite reports that the team was in talks with veteran S Ryan Clark in recent days. Clark’s asking price was reportedly more than Washington was willing to pay for a player of his age.
Meriweather, 30, appeared in 13 games last season and totaled 69 tackles, one sack, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a recovery.
