Redskins Signing Veteran LB Thomas Davis


Thomas Davis announced via his Instagram account on Tuesday that he’s signing with the Redskins. 

Davis is reunited with his former HC Ron Rivera in Washington.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Davis to a contract won’t impact the Redskins’ 2021 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason. 

Davis, 36, is a former first-round pick of the Panthers back in 2005. He was in the final year of his three-year, $18 million contract when he and the Panthers agreed to a one-year, $6.75 million extension through 2018.

The Panthers informed Davis after the 2018 season they would not be bringing him back and he later signed a two-year, $10.5 million deal with the Chargers. Unfortunately, Los Angeles released him last week. 

In 2019, Davis appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings and recorded 112 tackles, one sack and two pass defenses.
