Redskins Let Byron Westbrook Walk; Fred Davis Signs Franchise Tender

Via the official twitter of your Washington Redskins, cornerback Bryon Westbrook is now an unrestricted free agent.

The Westbrook release comes as somewhat of a surprise, given the Redskins lack of depth at the corner position. But it also comes in the wake of signing Cedric Griffin and the visit of Aaron Ross. (I - UkRedskin - personally am still pulling for Steelers corner William Gay, but that's just me).

The Redskins have also announced that tight end Fred Davis has signed his franchise tender.

This news comes as no surprise, as ESPN980's Chris Russell explains after the jump.

Good to see that Fred knows that he has to earn his right to a long term contract and redeem himself in the eyes of his teammates.

More news as and when we get it.
