Fred Davis, Trent Williams leave without speaking to media

Redskins tight end Fred Davis and tackle Trent Williams played their final games of the 2011 season in Sunday’s 34-19 loss to the Jets.

Both players are facing four-game suspensions for violating the league’s drug policy, a suspension both knew was coming but wasn’t implemented until after the game because they weren’t given official notification before kickoff. It was a hot topic in the locker room after the game, although neither player shared their thoughts with the media.

Ryan O’Halloran of CSNWashington.com reports that Davis and Williams showered and dressed in the coaches room before being escorted out of the building by security. So we will have to wait to find out about their previous violations of the policy, as players are only suspended after multiple incidents, and what exactly possessed them to keep using banned drugs after they were given a free pass for testing positive during the 30-day grace period granted to players after the settlement of the lockout.

    Any athlete who can’t stay clean for their relatively short career’s while making millions should be suspended for violating the substance abuse policies as well as for being complete idiots.
    Talk about taking your career for granted…….

    Oh, so that’s why Fred Davis slept in late on his first day of training camp as a rookie.

    It’s such a shame for Fred Davis to be caught using PEDs during a breakout year.

    I mean, what a coincidence that he would be caught using, probably, PEDs during the same year he was suddenly going to become a top notch player.

    Just bad luck I guess. No other possible explanation.

    The other explanation is that you are wrong, and they were recreational drugs. Look it up.

    Way to offer your opinion without knowing what you were talking about, though.

    ask yourself this …..if a player gets popped using PED chance are he was “trying ” to better his playing ability thus helping his team …but if he is found to be using weed or another recreational drug ,he is only being selfish just to catch himself a buzz….

    are they the same ?

    BTW ..could not happen to a better team ..Ha Ha Ha

    As a Redskin fan, this is unacceptable behavior for a pro football player.

    These two should be released and used as an example – doing drugs is not acceptable and conduct on and off the field needs to be above standard, not below it.

    I’ve lost all respect this season for a team that was 2 decades ago, dominant and professional.

    @themightywhitey

    how about if a player gets popped using PEDs he is CHEATING and if he’s found using a recreational drug he’s an idiot.

    still not the same thing… but you just tried to justify cheating.

    @laserw

    You’d cut your top young tight end and number one draft pick over something like being caught using recreational drugs? Yikes.

    I’m glad management doesn’t feel that way. Still, embarassing. What an awful team.

    *the ‘and your number one draft pick’ referenced Trent Williams
