The Washington Redskins have added a few veterans on defense, but the secondary is still riddled with the same question marks as it was last season.
Meriweather, 30, started 13 games in an overmatched defensive backfield last season, totaling 69 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble. After gaining a reputation as a head hunter, he had a two-game suspension reduced to one.
Although he fills a much-needed enforcer role in Jim Haslett's defense, Meriweather has long been inconsistent in coverage.
The veteran will have to hold off 2013 fourth-round draft pick Phillip Thomas, who missed all of last season with a Lisfranc injury.
Whether or not the Redskins add a declining Clark to the mix, safety will once again be a weak spot for Haslett's unit.
