Fletcher, Redskins in contract negotiations

The Washington Redskins and linebacker London Fletcher are trying to finalize a deal before start of offseason program Monday, according to a team source.

Fletcher, a Pro Bowl-quality linebacker and the lifeblood of Washington’s locker room, remains unsigned, but both sides are making a push to get it done and there is a sense it could come together this weekend.

Fletcher, 36,  is a fan favorite and one of the most durable and fundamentally sound players in the game, despite his age. It has surprised some a deal did not get done sooner, but there has been a renewed intensity in talks with the start of offseason workouts looming on April 16.
