Less than a week after being released by the Minnesota Vikings, cornerback Cedric Griffin has agreed to a contract with the Washington Redskins.
Agent Brian Overstreet told ESPN's Josina Anderson that Griffin will join Washington with a one-year deal worth $2.5 million.
Griffin's comeback from ACL tears in both knees -- both during the 2010 calendar year -- was a remarkable feat, but the 29-year-old just wasn't the same in 2011.
He appeared in all 16 games but was benched down the stretch even with the Vikings badly in need of capable cornerbacks in this increasingly pass-driven NFL. He was cut Saturday.
