Redskins safety Ryan Clark, who just completed a one-year deal in his second stint with the team, announced his retirement today on ESPN, officially ending his impressive 13-year career in the NFL.

Clark, who had already appeared as an analyst for ESPN over the last few weeks, foreshadowed the announcement earlier today on Twitter.

He began his career as an undrafted free agent but made the Giants roster and played over 20 games for them before signing a two-year deal with the Redskins. He then joined the Steelers in 2006.

Clark started 109 regular season games for Pittsburgh, making six playoff appearances and two Super Bowls, XLIII and XLV.

He rejoined Washington on April 1 and would appear in 16 games with 15 starts in 2014, recording more than 100 tackles and grabbing an interception in the process.

After the Redskins final game of the season against the Cowboys, Clark didn’t shed too many emotions considering he may have played in his final professional game.

“When you retire, when you sign those papers and you know never get another opportunity to do it, then the emotions come,” he said at the time. “I would have to think that those emotions come more in late July, early August, when you got a ton friends who are getting ready to go play football and you’re not suiting up. I think that’ll be the time that it really hits you that you’re not doing it anymore.”

Clark provided a veteran presence for many younger defensive backs still learning the game but admitted that teaching them was just as fulfilling.

“I watched some of these kids grow up,” he said. “You got to see [Bashaud] Breeland, you got to see Phillip Thomas. I got to see 17 different new football players on defense get out there and have a good time. I enjoyed every second of it.”

Take Your Own Wonderlic Test

New Test Measures How Players Learn

The NFL Scouting Combine is underway in Indianapolis, where college prospects have the opportunity to turn scouts’ heads with their physicality, strength and speed.

But for those concerned with players’ mental capacities and decision-making skills, the Wonderlic test can often be an equally important determination in forecasting a player’s future.

You may be able to cut on a dime or possess pinpoint passing, but how do you think, learn, problem solve and follow instructions?

That’s the other chore — and many times a decisive factor for quarterbacks — for players who are preparing to showcase their abilities.

But why is the Wonderlic, a test filled with a variety of logic problems, so important?

According to the Wonderlic website, the test asks, “can a player understand the playbook, know where they need to be on the field, make intelligent decisions, learn quickly…?” These are all things that are VITAL when teams are making draft decisions – especially when two or more players have very similar physical skills.”

If you’re curious as to how you might fare, here’s a sample test to take.

The test is composed of 50 questions to be finished in 12 minutes.

Here are a few of the questions, as crafted by 24/7 Sports.

– A plane travels 70 feet in 1/10 second. At this same speed, how many feet will it travel in 3.5 seconds?

– PRIDE is the opposite of: 1. Reserve  2. Self-esteem  3. Self-abasement  4. Disdain  5. Arrogance

– A boy is 15 years old and his sister is twice as old. When the boy is 25 years old, what will be the age of his sister?

Think you can handle the whole test?

The best score tallied from a football player was when Ryan Fitzpatrick, a Harvard grad, scored a 48/50. Take that for what it’s worth.

Give us your opinion.

During his press conference at the NFL Combine today, Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden touched on a variety of topics about the team, one of which was the impact some of the new coaches will have on the roster.

On Feb. 2, the Redskins announced that Robb Akey was named defensive line coach.

While he’s got extensive coaching experience, including most recently being the assistant defensive line coach for the Minnesota Vikings during the 2014 season, Akey really stands out because of his passion for the game.

And that’s both on and off the field.

“Robb Akey — he’s got some energy, man,” Gruden began. “He’s an energetic, passionate guy. When we interviewed him, he knocked over garbage cans and chairs and tables, he was fired up.”

That’s one way to show you’re ready to go.

Overall, Gruden said he’s looking forward to spending more time with the new coaches on staff.

“It’s a great group, I think,” he said. “With Joe Barry and Robb and Perry Fewell and the coaches that we’ve added on defense, and on offense with Bill Callahan and Matt Cavanaugh, and, of course, our strength room has changed. I think we’ve made some positive changes.”

The entire Washington, D.C., area was blanketed with snow Monday, meaning kids (and some adults) got to enjoy a “snow day.”

Some prefer to stay inside, keep warm, make hot chocolate and flip on Netflix. Others, mostly the youngsters that want to stay active, put on their coats and boots, grab their sleds and make the day count for something.

So, our quest was simple.

Here are some of the responses, a diverse group of how some fans, and one’s dog, enjoyed their days off in the cold.

All this winter weather probably has you dreaming of being on a beach somewhere, soaking up some sunshine as the mercury rises on the thermometer.

Perhaps that place is Hawaii, home to Redskins guard Shawn Lauvao.

Lauvao was a guest on “Redskins Late Night” during the season, where he was asked to name some of his favorite things to do on the islands.

Well, the 6-foot-3, 315 pounder started with all of the different food options you can choose from, saying he’s “probably pretty biased” because he likes eating .

“There’s a lot of good food back home,” he told Crystal Ball. “There’s a lot of different cultures. So in terms of like the choices of food, a lot of good Asian food, a lot of good Japanese food, Korean, Thai, obviously American.  I’d say there’s a lot of variety.”

And after you eat a big meal, you can go see to a luau.

“They have the Disney resort out there, that’s pretty popular,” he said.  The Polynesian Culture Center is another good place for a luau. Just hitting up a random family at times, that’s probably a good time, too.”

The NFL Combine starts today, but last weekend kids in the Northern Virginia area got a jumpstart on the workouts.

The Washington Redskins Kids Club, in conjunction with Orthopaedic Virginia, hosted a Mini Combine on Saturday with help from wide receiver Jerry Rice Jr. and defensive lineman Robert Thomas.

“Play 60 is a good organization, where 60 minutes per day, it’s great exercise for the kids,” said Rice Jr. “We’re just having fun with these kids on this Saturday and I wanted to help out. Coming out here and showing [and] having fun is definitely an aspect kids need to see.”

The kids participated in the same drills as some NFL prospects will in the next few days, running the 40-yard dash and participating in the long jump as well as some more kid-friendly exercises.

Thomas, when asked about why he was there to help, put it simply.

“Anytime I can help kids,” he said, “I’m there.”

An alligator probably isn’t something you’d want to see during a day on the golf course, but that’s exactly what happened to Redskins legendary cornerback and Pro Football Hall of Famer Darrell Green.

In his photo caption, Green asks who would win in a race between the reptile and the four-time NFL Fastest Man Competition winner.

I think we’ll go with you, Darrell:
