The contract has a base salary of $855,000 and came with a $145,000 signing bonus. The cap hit for Clark’s contract is $1 million.
The Redskins, according to NFLPA records, had $6.3 million in cap space prior to the signings of Clark and wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
The cap hit for Jackson’s contract in 2014 will come out at $4.25 million. Subtracting that, plus Clark’s $1 million would leave the Redskins with roughly $1.05 million in cap space.
Washington on Thursday also signed quarterback Colt McCoy, but the terms of his deal weren’t immediately available.
The Redskins have a number of players who have sizable cap hits and could be possible candidates for restructuring to create more financial flexibility. They include nose tackle Barry Cofield ($7.67 million cap hit), defensive end Stephen Bowen ($7.02 million and coming off injury), guard Chris Chester ($4.3 million).
