With the trade deadline less than a day away, the Redskins are trying hard to make a deal.
Per a league source, Washington hopes to trade tight end Fred Davis.
The 2012 franchise-tag recipient tore an Achilles tendon last season. He returned under a one-year, $1 million contract, and the Redskins have phased him out of their plans, given the performances of Jordan Reed and Logan Paulsen.
The Redskins, according to the source, are aggressively shopping Davis. If a deal can’t be worked out, there’s a chance Davis will be cut.
If he’s cut after the trade deadline, Davis will be subject to waivers.
