Packers left tackle Chad Clifton will be in Ashburn, Va., on Friday to visit with the Redskins, according to Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole. The Redskins are looking to replace Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels, who announced his retirement Thursday.
Clifton, 33, is the top offensive tackle on the free-agent market and he's apparently seeking somewhere in the neighborhood of $7 million a year. With the Redskins desperate for help along the offensive line, it's reasonable to think they'll outbid the Packers for Clifton's services.
We'll be talking to folks at Redskins Park in the morning and we'll let you know if there are any updates. Clifton has started 138 games since being selected in the second round of the 2000 draft.
