|Entering 2011, expectations were low for the talented Davis – the Redskins 2008 2nd round pick. Despite playing well for an injured Chris Cooley at the conclusion of the 2009 season, Davis was a forgotten man in the Redskins offense in 2010 and with Cooley still in the picture, not much was expected to change in 2011. However, with Cooley suffering through knee and hand injuries, Davis started all 12 of the games he played before a four-game suspension for drug-related issues ended his season. He emerged as the team’s top receiving threat, reaching career-highs in receptions (59) and yards (796) while also catching three touchdown passes. His 8.1 FPts per game average ranked 5th at tight end and he should finish near that ranking in 2012 provided he plays 16 games. Of course, his next suspension will result in a 16-game absence so he brings enormous risk.

New England with plenty of depth at tight end

FF Today's Take: Wright scored 11 TDs over the last two years but only had 33 receptions last year in New England. Scott Chandler, Michael Hoomanawanui and Fred Davis remain on the roster as backups to Rob Gronkowski.

FF Today's Take: Davis was suspended last season for violating the substance-abuse policy and was reinstated last week. The Patriots already have Scott Chandler and Tim Wright backing up Rob Gronkowski at the position so Davis will have his work cut out for him to even make the team out of training camp.

29-year-old free to sign with any team
|Former Washington tight end Fred Davis, suspended indefinitely by the NFL in February 2014 under the substance-abuse policy, has been reinstated, PFT’s Mike Florio reports.
The 29-year-old Davis is immediately free to sign with clubs.
FF Today's Take: Davis suffered an Achilles injury in 2012 and only caught seven passes in 2013. Tight end needy teams included Arizona, Buffalo, Atlanta and Cleveland to name a few. Davis was arrested for DUI in 2014.
