Redskins Promote TE J.P. Holtz, Waive WR Robert Davis


According to Ben Standig, the Redskins have promoted TE J.P. Holtz to their active roster and waived WR Robert Davis.

Standig adds that the hope is Davis returns to Washington next week.

Holtz, 26, originally signed on with the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh back in 2016. Cleveland signed him to their practice squad and re-signed him to a one-year futures contract the next offseason.

After bouncing on and off the Browns’ practice squad, he signed on with the Redskins last summer but was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. Holtz signed with Washington’s practice squad once clearing waivers but was once again cut loose coming out of the preseason. 

During his four-year college career at Pittsburgh, Holtz recorded 81 receptions for 931 yards receiving (11.5 YPC) and 11 touchdowns.
