Patriots Sign Former Redskins TE Fred Davis To A One-Year Deal


ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that former Redskins TE Fred Davis has reached an agreement with the Patriots on a one-year contract.

  • According to Field Yates, Davis receives a one-year deal from the Patriots worth $825,000, but no guaranteed money.
  • Yates adds that the agreement includes $20,000 in workout bonuses and another $60,000 in per-game roster bonuses.

It surprisingly didn’t take long for Davis to find a new opportunity after the NFL reinstated him last week.

Last February, Davis received an indefinite suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. However, he was arrested the next day for a DUI.

Davis, 29, is a former second round pick of the Redskins back in 2008. He played out his rookie contract with the team and wound up receiving the franchise tag back in 2012. Washington later signed him to a one-year deal before allowing him to depart as a free agent in 2014.

He last appeared in an NFL game during the 2013 season and caught just seven passes for 70 yards receiving and one touchdown.
