Redskins sign a safety


The Redskins addressed their need for help at safety earlier this offseason by signing the well-seasoned Ryan Clark, but that wasn’t the end of their machinations at the position.

This time, though, they’ve gone to the other end of the experience spectrum. The team announced that they have signed Akeem Davis, who has never played in an NFL game, as a free agent.

Davis spent some time with the Seahawks at a rookie minicamp last offseason after going undrafted out of Memphis, but didn’t spend the rest of the offseason with them. The team signed him after also working out former Ravens safety Christian Thompson.

As you might imagine given his lack of professional experience, Davis isn’t likely to vault to the top of the Redskins’ depth chart at safety. Clark and Brandon Meriweather currently reside in those spots with Bacarri Rambo and Phillip Thomas behind them. It’s not the strongest group, which may point to more additions coming aboard via the draft.

    I imagine the price is right so it sounds like a good move. May turn out to be good and probably at least as good as Rambo, if not no harm done. Don’t think the last regime would have made this move.

    Checks until August my man, stack your bread and wisely invest it. Also, get as many networking contacts as you can get. You never know hanging around millionaires and billionaires.
