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.
