Update: Redskins Officially Sign S Akeem Davis After Re-Filing Contract With The NFL



The Redskins and S Akeem Davis re-filed their contract on Monday after the league disapproved of their original  agreement.

According to the NFL transactions release, the Redskins have officially signed Davis.


Aaron Wilson reports that the Akeem Davis’ contract with the Redskins has been disapproved by the NFL.

  • Wilson adds that he expects the contract to be refiled at some point.


Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that the Redskins have signed S Akeem Davis to a contract on Thursday.

  • The team has since announced the signing via their Twitter account.

Davis signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Memphis last year. Unfortunately for him, Seattle elected to release Davis before the start of the season.

Washington worked out S Christian Thompson earlier in the week and has signed Ryan Clark and Brandon Meriweather to contracts this offseason, so they are clearly looking to increase the competition at the safety position ahead of training camp.
