Washington Football Team Cuts Player Six Months After Giving Him A $2 Million Signing Bonus

I would not chalk this up in money well spent.

In March, the Washington Football Team signed safety Sean Davis to a contract that included a $2 million signing bonus. Unfortunately for them, that did not work out as the team released Davis on Saturday.

The 26-year-old Davis spent the last four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team who selected him in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Davis, a native of the Washington D.C. area returned home to sign with Washington but apparently did not impress Ron Rivera and the coaching staff and was beat out by the team’s seventh-round safety Kamren Curl.
