WASHINGTON (AP) — Free agent cornerback Cedric Griffin has signed with the Washington Redskins.

Griffin agreed Friday to a one-year deal which could be worth as much as $2.5 million, according to The Washington Post.

Griffin was cut last week by Minnesota, where he played for six seasons. He came back after tearing the ACL in both knees in 2010 to play in all 16 games last year, but he wasn’t able to regain his previous form, was benched late in the season and expressed dissatisfaction with his demotion.

He had three years left on his contract when he was released by the Vikings and had been due $4.1 million in salary for 2012.

The Redskins could be looking to move Griffin to safety, where the team is seeking to replace LaRon Landry and Oshiomogho Atogwe.

The Redskins also announced that tight end Fred Davis has signed his franchise player tender, a one-year deal worth $5.446 million. General manager Bruce Allen has said he hopes to sign Davis to a long-term contract.
