Redskins look at Aaron Ross, Cedric Griffin for possible CB help

The Washington Redskins continue to look for help in their secondary, with visits with cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Cedric Griffin, according to two people with knowledge of the situation.

Ross arrived at Redskins Park after flying in from Cincinnati, where he met with the Bengals on Thursday, and Griffin was expected to arrive in Ashburn later Friday.

The 6-foot, 190-pound Ross has spent his entire five-year career with the New York Giants. Last season, he started 15 out of 16 games, recording 60 tackles and four interceptions to go with 12 pass breakups.

Griffin is entering his seventh season in the NFL. The 6-foot, 203-pounder last season started 14 of 16 games, recording 67 tackles, nine pass breakups and one interception. Griffin, who like Ross, played college ball at Texas, missed most of the 2010 season with a torn ACL. He got replaced as a starter in the final two games of the 2011 season, and was cut this week by Minnesota.

Washington has DeAngelo Hall, Josh Wilson and Kevin Barnes under contract. But Barnes had an inconsistent season as Washington’s third corner, prompting the Redskins to look for help this offseason.
