Free from a $36 million salary cap penalty imposed over the last two years, the Washington Redskins will enter the start to free agency Tuesday afternoon with approximately $20 million available to spend. That won't be enough to immediately upgrade the talent at every position, but there will be some changeover in the roster.
A year after investing two draft picks in safeties, the Redskins still are searching for answers at the position.
The reserve free safety signed a one-year, $495,000 contract to return to the Redskins, who he joined during the first week of training camp in 2013.
The Redskins have re-signed backup safety Jose Gumbs to a one-year contract.
Veterans Brandon Meriweather and Reed Doughty are set to become unrestricted free agents, while draft picks Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo remain unknown quantities. Indeed, the Redskins have many questions at safety entering the offseason.
The Redskins defense held up its end of the deal in the team's loss to Atlanta.
Cornerback DeAngelo Hall, defensive end Stephen Bowen and safety Jose Gumbs have been listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday.
Davis sat amidst rumors that he wants to be dealt before the NFL trade deadline on Tuesday. Davis denied that in a radio interview last Tuesday with radio station 106.7 The Fan. But he also said that a change of scenery might be necessary if he isn't in the team's plans.
His 26-yard interception return for a touchdown early in the third quarter put the Redskins ahead 21-7 and stunned the crowd at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. But they were the last points Washington would score in a 45-21 loss.
Like Shanahan's previous 54 games with the Redskins, Sunday offered teases of success. But teases don't contend for Super Bowls. Teases hang around long enough to see their hopes evaporate into the city's thin air in a flurry of mistakes that made Shanahan's heady days seem more distant than the highlight video.
