Akeem “@Da_DREAM47” Davis is officially a member of the Twitterverse.

Originally a college free agent out of the University of Memphis, Davis has made some noise this year for the Washington Redskins, especially on specials teams where he’s leveled a few returners.

His path to a member of the Redskins’ active roster certainly wasn’t easy, as NFL Network has shown on “Undrafted” — a six-part series that airs each Tuesday through Dec. 9, with special advance premieres each week after “Thursday Night Football.”

After giving Davis a follow, learn more about the rookie off the field below:

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay returns to San Francisco — home city to a 49ers franchise

that was led to multiple Super Bowl championships by Sean’s grandfather, John.

Hired in 1978 to reconstruct a 49ers franchise that was coming off a 2-14 season, McVay — who served in several roles different roles including general manager — would turnaround the franchise quickly.

“After he was the head coach of the Giants, he got a chance to get on board with Coach Bill Walsh and those guys when they first got there,” McVay said. “He was kind of in an executive role and his role grew over the years and he was able to be a part of five championship teams.

“It was a real special thing for him.”

For more from McVay’s relationship with his grandfather and how he impacted his football career, check out this article on Redskins.com.
