Free Agent Davis Cancels Visit To Jets


Recommended Posts

Former Washington Redskins tight end free agent Fred Davis was scheduled to visit the New York Jets on Friday but has decided to cancel his trip to Florham Park:

Apparently Davis is satisfied choosing between the Buffalo Bills, who have been recruiting Davis over the past few days, or returning to the Redskins.

The Jets tendered restricted free agent tight end Jeff Cumberland (29 REC, 359 YDS, 3 TDS) at the lowest level right-of-first-refusal, which means Cumberland can negotiate with other teams but the Jets can match any offer, it is likely he’ll remain with the Jets.

Currently Konrad Reuland (11 REC, 83 YDS) and Hayden Smith (1 REC, 16 YDS) are the only tight ends on the Jets roster so the team will continue looking to improve the depth at this position.

The Washington Redskins re-signed tight end Fred Davis, the team announced Friday.


A league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Davis signed a one-year deal.

On Thursday night, media reports said Davis did not make a trip to meet with the New York Jets, one of the teams reported to be courting him.


Davis has played for the Redskins since being drafted by the team in 2008, and he had met earlier in the week with the Buffalo Bills.


He was the Redskins' leading receiver with 24 catches for 325 yards before tearing his Achilles' tendon against the Giants this past October.


He recently told the NFL Network that he is recovering well from the injury and that he is even "a little bit ahead of schedule."


In 2011, he was having a career year with 59 catches for 796 yards before being suspended for the final four games after failing multiple drug tests.


The 27-year-old tight end has 155 catches, 1,973 yards and 12 touchdowns in 62 career games.
