Former Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis and QB Jimmy Clausen could find themselves together again with the Washington Redskins next season.
It’s a possibility.
Monday morning on The Sports Junkies radio show on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, DC, Redskins beat report Chris Russell stated that Charlie Weis was a possibility to come to Washington next season.
Given the fact that Redskins GM Vinny Cerrato has a soft spot for Notre Dame, the move would make sense.
It was also reported that the Redskins – who in all likelihood will have a top 5 draft pick in April – are seriously interested in Jimmy Clausen who announced that he will skip his senior season and declare himself eligible for the NFL draft on Monday.
There is no denying that the pair have a special bond. In fact, despite being heavily recruited by USC, Clausen chose to attend Notre Dame simply because of Weis’ NFL coaching experience.
Although the Irish had a lackluster 6-6 season, Clausen had a banner year, passing for 3,722 yards, 28 touchdowns and only four interceptions.
Other teams interested in Clausen’s services include the St. Louis Rams and Cleveland Browns who have his predecessor Brady Quinn under center at the moment.
A lot of the reunion is contingent on whether or not Cerrato is retained by the Redskins next season. There is speculation that he and owner Daniel Snyder are on the outs.
