Redskins, Jordan Reed agree on extension-- Thu May 5 9:23 am --
5-years, 22 million guaranteed
Redskins TE Jordan Reed is signing a 5-year, $50 million extension, per source.(Adam Schefter on Twitter)
FF Today's Take:Reed's battled injury concerns during his three-year career but remains a difference maker at the position when healthy. He finished 5th in fantasy points (standard scoring) among tight ends last season despite missing two games. He'll be a high-end TE1 in redraft leagues.
Redskins sign TE Vernon Davis-- Thu Mar 31 12:10 pm --
The Washington Redskins have agreed to a one-year deal with veteran tight end Vernon Davis, a source told ESPN's John Keim on Thursday. Davis was acquired last November by the Denver Broncos, who gave up a sixth-round pick in April's draft as well as a sixth-round pick in 2017 in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers. He finished last season with 38 receptions for 395 yards between the two teams.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:While Davis has pass-catching ability the Redskins are likely more interested in his blocking ability as Jordan Reed will be featured as a receiving weapon in the offense. Davis' fantasy value is minimal unless he's thrust into a starting role due to a Reed injury.
