4:28pm: The Redskins have re-filed Davis’ contract and it now has become official after initially being disapproved, tweets Wilson. It’s not clear exactly what the problem with the initial deal was.
MONDAY, 1:36pm: The Redskins’ contract with Davis has been disapproved, reports Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun (via Twitter). Wilson adds that the contract is likely to be refiled.
Occasionally, the NFL will nix a contract for various reasons. The majority of the time, these contracts are redesigned and (usually) subsequently approved by the league office.
THURSDAY, 8:39am: The Redskins have signed free agent safety Akeem Davis, reports Mike Jones of the Washington Post. As we heard yesterday, the team also worked out former Raven Christian Thompson, but elected to sign Davis instead.
Davis, who played his college ball at Memphis, went undrafted and signed with the Seahawks last year. However, he failed to make the team’s regular-season roster. He’ll likely be given the opportunity to compete for a spot on Washington’s 2014 roster as a secondary depth piece and a special-teams contributor.
