Redskins may lose Lorenzo Alexander and Fred Davis via Free Agency

The Redskins have come out of the gate, as some have described it, with the modus operandi of “keeping the band together,” resigning several key veterans over the past few days, most recently inking deals with punter Sav Rocca, long snapper Nick Sundberg, and defensive end Kedric Golston.

But even with those efforts, they’re about to lose two key players from their 2012 roster.

Linebacker, special teams ace, Pro Bowler, and current free agent Lorenzo Alexander indicated that he will be selecting the team he intends to sign with for the 2013 season, and it appears that team won’t be the Redskins. Alexander’s agent even tweeted that his client has chosen a new team, and there are reports out of Arizona that Alexander is there right now — meaning his signing with the Arizona Cardinals, one of the presumed front-runners to sign him, could be imminent.

In addition, free agent tight end Fred Davis could be headed to the Cleveland Browns. There are various reports indicating the Browns have expressed interest in Davis, and it could be between Cleveland and Washington as far as where Davis signs. Davis is from the Toledo area, and Jon Embree, the current tight ends coach in Cleveland, once coached Davis when Embree was on the Redskins staff in the same position. Add in the fact of the Redskins alarming lack of salary cap space — they reportedly had less than $1 million in cap room as of this morning — and it’s easy to believe Cleveland has the upper hand in any negotiations with Davis.
