Skins' Cerrato to visit with Clausen

In case you hadn't heard, Redskins executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato was the recruiting coordinator at Notre Dame for Lou Holtz in the late 80s. He's very proud of his Notre Dame ties, so it was no surprise that he and Dan Snyder were scouting quarterback Jimmy Clausen this season.

But it is a bit of a surprise that Cerrato will invite Clausen to be on his ESPN 980 show, "Inside the Red Zone" this morning. Most personnel gurus around the league wouldn't want to tip their hand when it comes to scouting a player -- especially this early. It's no secret, though, that the Skins are interested in a new franchise quarterback.

We'll try to track down the audio for you guys.
