Brandon Meriweather’s contract voids five days after Super Bowl

Safety Brandon Meriweather’s contract with the Washington Redskins voids next week to make him an unrestricted free agent this offseason, according to a person familiar with the deal.

According to that person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the contract details publicly, Meriweather’s contract voids five days after the Super Bowl and there is no option year in the deal to potentially tie him to the team next season.

That clause to void Meriweather’s contract this offseason was not changed when he and the team agreed last year to rework the deal, the person said.
The Redskins still could retain Meriweather by re-signing him. He will be eligible to sign with another NFL team in March.

Meriweather has spent two seasons with the Redskins since signing with the team as a free agent.
