Notre Dame QB Clausen will start two-day Redskins visit Friday

Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen will arrive in Washington on Friday to begin a two-day visit with the Redskins, according to a team source.

Smooth ride expected

New Redskins RB Larry Johnson, a controversial figure as a Chief, doesn't forsee any problems with his new team in what he calls "a different era."

The Redskins hold the fourth overall pick in this month's NFL draft and continue to show interest in adding quarterbacks.

Jason Campbell has been the team's starter since 2006, but new coach Mike Shanahan hasn't committed to him. The Redskins signed former Chicago Bears starter Rex Grossman on March 17 and also have 25-year-old Colt Brennan on their roster.

Clausen also is scheduled to meet with the St. Louis Rams, Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars, according to senior writer Steve Wyche. Although he's still rehabilitating from foot surgery that he had in January, Clausen also is expected to work out for teams at his personal pro day April 9 at Notre Dame.

The Redskins also have a workout scheduled with Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford on April 15, according to Jason Reid of The Washington Post.
