Redskins Have Discussed Extension With TE Vernon Davis

According to John Keim of ESPN, the Redskins have already discussed a new contract for impending free agent TE Vernon Davis.

Since joining the Redskins, Davis has resurrected his career and is now in line to be among the best available tight ends in this year’s free agent class.

Davis said previously that he feels like he could continue playing for several more years.

“I’m having so much fun I feel I can play another five years,” Davis said, via ESPN“It’s just the opportunities are right. Being here, I’ve had to make plays and just play ball, whether it’s blocking or catching passes. I’m having fun.”

Davis, 32, is a former first-round pick of the 49ers back in 2006. He spent over nine years in San Francisco before he was traded to the Broncos ahead of last year’s deadline.

The Redskins later signed him to a one-year, $2.4 million contract last March.

In 2016, Davis appeared in all 16 games for the Redskins and caught 44 passes for 583 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 20 tight end out of 66 qualifying players.
