Free agent cornerback Jamar Fletcher has canceled today's scheduled visit to Redskins Park, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, and does not anticipate future negotiations with the club. Fletcher will visit other clubs this week instead, according to the source, who said the Redskins were close to signing another free agent cornerback.
Redskins Vice President of Football Operations Vinny Cerrato declined to comment when contacted last night. Fletcher spent last season with San Diego, and the Redskins have been in regular contact with his agent since last month. Washington has been seeking a nickel cornerback in free agency and brought in veteran Kenny Wright for a visit last month.
Wright was drafted in the fourth round by Minnesota in 1999 and spent three seasons with the Vikings and three with Houston before joining Jacksonville in 2005. He has three sacks and six interceptions in 100 regular season games.
