The Redskins are "intrigued" by S Akeem Davis and are "anxious to see more" from him.

Davis was initially signed as an undrafted free agent last year by the Seahawks, but didn't make a practice squad or active roster. The Redskins scooped him up in April. At Memphis' Pro Day, Davis (6'/201) ran a blazing 4.37 forty and posted an explosive 39 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-6 broad jump. The Redskins have a weak safety group. Davis will have to show he can cover kicks to make it.

Redskins signed S Akeem Davis.

Davis signed with the Seahawks after going undrafted out of Memphis last spring, but didn't crack the final roster. He joins an ugly Redskins safety unit that lists Brandon Meriweather/Ryan Clark as starters, and Phillip Thomas/Bacarri Rambo as backups. Davis will fight with the likes of Jose Gumbs and Trenton Robinson for a spot.
