S Meriweather gets 2-yr, $6M deal with Redskins
WASHINGTON (AP) Free agent safety Brandon Meriweather has signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Washington Redskins.
The 28-year-old Meriweather was a first-round draft pick by New England in 2007 and was a two-time Pro Bowl player with the Patriots before he was cut at the end of last year's training camp.
He then signed with Chicago but was a disappointment with the Bears, losing his starting job early in the season.
The Redskins need help after at safety after cutting the underperforming Atogwe on Monday. The team also didn't re-sign Landry, who is recovering from an Achilles injury and became a free agent this week.
