Report: Not A Lot Of Interest In Redskins TE Fred Davis


Jason La Canfora reports that Redskins have yet to get any “decent action” on TE Fred Davis.


Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that the Washington Redskins are “aggressively” trying to trade TE Fred Davis

  • Florio adds that the Redskins could end up releasing Davis outright if they are unable to find a trade partner.

This is a pretty good indication that Washington’s asking price for Davis isn’t very high. Washington is hoping to move Davis now that rookie Jordan Reed has replaced him as their starting tight end.

A number of teams could use a tight end, so it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see Davis playing elsewhere come Tuesday night. Speculative options could include the Bills, Chiefs Jets and Ravens.

We’ll have more regarding possible Davis leading up to tomorrow’s deadline.


Pro Football Talk is reporting that sources have informed them that the Washington Redskins are attempting to trade TE Fred Davis.

  • Ian Rapoport confirms that the Redskins have made it known that Davis is available.

Davis was inactive for Week 7’s game against the Bears, which saw rookie Jordan Reed have a breakout game for the Redskins offense. Davis has been dealing with an ankle injury in recent weeks, but many expected him to be available this weekend. He has only been active for just four games this season.

Davis, 27, is in the final year of his contract and will be an unrestricted free agent following the season.

  • Brian McIntyre notes that Davis is due $588,000 in base salary over the final ten weeks of the season and has $500,000 roster bonus if he’s active for 12 games this season.

It will be interesting to see if a trade market develops for him in the near future as the deadline is just over a week away.
