Jimmy Clausen works out for Washington Redskins

Jimmy Clausen is back on the NFL radar.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Washington Redskins worked out Clausen.

Clausen started three games in 2015, one with the Chicago Bears and two with the Baltimore Ravens. He owns a 54 percent completion rate for his career with seven touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

The 28-year-old signal-caller hasn't been considered a viable starter since his wayward rookie season with the Carolina Panthers in 2010. Still, he could find work as a competent backup who can run an offense in a pinch.

The Redskins re-signed veteran Colt McCoy this offseason to be the veteran backup behind starter Kirk Cousins. Sixth-round pick Nate Sudfeld is the team's developmental project. At this stage, we'd be surprised if Washington added Clausen as more than a camp arm, but he could make his way onto a roster if injuries strike.

The Redskins also worked out former Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown, among other pass catchers, Rapoport reported.
