Davis Seeking Redemption On One-Year Deal

Posted Aug 2, 2012

Redskins TE Fred Davis has shown up to training camp in great shape, but will need to prove himself in 2012 if he wants to be the team's future at tight end.

Tight end Fred Davis understands that in order to become the team’s future at tight end, he will need to prove himself on a one-year deal.

Davis weathered a four-game suspension to end his breakout 2011 season, and received the team’s franchise tag during the offseason.

While many tagged players holdout in hopes of a long-term deal, Davis isn’t concerned with anything past this upcoming season.

“I’m not thinking about that,” Davis said after practice. “I’m fine with what I got. I’m just going to keep working, that’s what it’s all about. I want to win, so I’m not really worried about that.”

“It’s showing them that I’m here and that I’m focused.”

Head Coach Mike Shanahan has seen evidence of Davis’s new mindset and is pleased with the way he and offensive tackle Trent Williams – also suspended four games – have approached football.

“I think they both know that if they slip up, not only are they killing themselves, but they are really hurting our football team,” Shanahan explained.  “They have both come in in excellent shape. 

“You can see they made a commitment to work out, work out extremely hard, and I’m really proud of the way they’ve handled themselves, all the way through the OTA’s and what type of shape they’re in.”

Davis has reassured both the team and the media that the possibility of another “slip-up” is out of the question.

“It’s not even stressful, because this is something that I’m not even going to do so I’m not even worried about it.”

In the first 12 games last year, Davis hauled in 59 receptions for 796 yards and three touchdowns.  With last year’s distractions behind him, Davis expects a big year from himself and the tight end unit.

“I think you can expect a lot of big plays, a lot of explosion,” he said.  “We have some good players at the position. Cooley is back, Niles is doing well, and Logan—all of us are pretty solid at this position.”

So solid, that Davis thinks they might be the strongest position group on the team.

“It’s probably the most solid position on the team right now, so I think we’re going to do a lot of great things.”
