Clemons, Scott re-sign

Linebacker Chris Clemons made an impact in limited time for the Redskins last season. They hope he can do even more next season.<BR><BR>Clemons and receiver Gari Scott both re-signed with Washington today.

The 6-3, 234-pound Clemons played six games for the Redskins, after being signed off Cleveland's practice squad. Clemons' impact mostly came on third downs when he rushed as an end. He recorded three sacks and forced a fumble.

His body size reminds some of ex-Redskin linebacker Shawn Barber, but the coaches view Clemons as a rush end. However, the biggest knock on him in that role is his size. The coaches fear he would wear down too much over 16 games.

The 6-foot, 200-pound Scott spent the past season on Washington's practice squad. He impressed them with his special teams ability, but he never did much when given the chance this past preseason.

Washington also waived linebacker Maurice Jones.
