Brandon Meriweather has found his new home.
The Redskins signed Meriweather to a contract today that Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports is a two-year, $6 million deal.
Meriweather had been scheduled to visit the Jets, but that visit has now been canceled, and the Jets’ pursuit of a new safety will continue. It’s possible that the Jets could sign LaRon Landry, the man Meriweather is essentially replacing in Washington.
Last season Meriweather played 11 games for the Bears and started four. Prior to that he spent four seasons with the Patriots.
