Akeem Davis, a safety who went undrafted out of Memphis last April, signed with the Redskins on Thursday, the team announced.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Davis, 24, was invited to the Seattle Seahawks’ rookie minicamp last spring, but he did not make the team and was not on any team’s active roster or practice squad last season.

He was scheduled to participate in the Super Regional Combine this weekend in Detroit, which is a collection of former collegiate standouts at each of the 10 regional combines held around the country in February and March.

Davis started all 24 games during his final two seasons at Memphis, playing free safety, strong safety and nickelback after recovering from a torn ACL in one of his knees during his sophomore year.

The Redskins have six other safeties on their active roster: Ryan Clark and Brandon Meriweather, the projected starters, as well as Bacarri Rambo, Phillip Thomas, Jose Gumbs and Trenton Robinson.

Before Davis‘ signing, the team had $2,590,869 remaining in salary cap room, according to NFL Players Association records.
