CB Cedric Griffin agrees to terms with Redskins

Published:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Free agent cornerback Cedric Griffin has agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins.

Griffin was expected to sign his contract Friday.

Griffin was cut last week by Minnesota, where he played for six years. He came back after tearing the ACL in both knees in 2010 to play in all 16 games last year, but he wasn't able to regain his previous form, was benched late in the season and expressed dissatisfaction with his demotion.

He had three years left on his contract when he was released by the Vikings and had been due $4.1 million in salary for 2012.

The Redskins could be looking to move Griffin to safety, where the team is seeking to replace LaRon Landry and Oshiomogho Atogwe.
