Washington Football Team releases safety Sean Davis

The Washington Football Team has released safety Sean Davis.

Davis had signed a one-year contract with Washington during the offseason that included a $2 million signing bonus.

A 2016 second-round pick out of Maryland, Davis missed nearly the entire 2019 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers after suffering a shoulder injury in Week 2 and going on injured reserve.

Before his injury, Davis was a regular starter with the Steelers in 2017 and 2018. In 2017, he racked up three interceptions and one forced fumble to go with 92 tackles.

Davis, 26, has started 41 of his 48 career games and has 247 tackles, five interceptions and 2.5 sacks.

Washington also placed linebacker Reuben Foster on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his 2020 season.

Foster tore the LCL and ACL in his left knee on the first day of organized team activities in May 2019. He also suffered nerve damage in his foot, which lengthened his recovery period.

He had been activated off the physically unable to perform list last month.

Foster, claimed off waivers by Washington on Nov. 27, 2018, has yet to play for the team. The San Francisco 49ers waived him because of an arrest for misdemeanor domestic violence, and the NFL placed him on the commissioner's exempt list for the rest of the season. Those charges were eventually dropped, as were charges related to another domestic violence case earlier in 2018 involving the same woman.
