Fred Davis suspended indefinitely

When a report surfaced in January that Washington tight end Fred Davis had been suspended six games for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy, no one officially confirmed or denied it, but one league source told PFT that the report was “technically inaccurate.”

Now the team has confirmed that Davis is, in fact, suspended. What was inaccurate is that the suspension is indefinite, not for six games.

Davis is about to become a free agent, so he soon won’t be Washington’s problem anymore. Davis’s suspension begins immediately, and when (and if) he’s reinstated, he’ll need to find some team willing to sign him.

The 28-year-old Davis looked like one of the NFL’s best young tight ends a couple of years ago, but he tore his Achilles tendon in 2012 and was a disappointment in 2013, and his playing time diminished as the season went on. Now he’s looking like an even bigger disappointment off the field than on.

    That’s a shame. Doesn’t change the fact that the Giants are god awful, but still: a shame.

    He might remodel that dog house into a dog mansion by the time he finally gets out of there.

    Ha! Ha! You want that supersized?

    So, indefinite because he’s had multiple violations or what?

    Ring,ring,ring…. Jerry Jones on line two Mr. Davis.

    I knew he was a head case during his trial when he appointed himself as his own lawyer,that trial was hilarious when he cross examined his accuser.

    He honestly might have a mental issue like Titus Young or something. He was given every chance to succeed and he just threw it away.

    He simply doesn’t care about football and made stupid decision after stupid decision.

    I wish him well in the future, but I doubt we see him in the NFL ever again.

    That went downhill pretty fast. Hope this guy can overcome this and be one of those redemption stories later on in his career.

    Tanard Jackson can give him some stay at home tips

    Real shame, such a talented player. I remember thinking about how high his ceiling was when he made Rex Grossman look good!

  17. thealmightybigblue says: Feb 19, 2014 4:37 PM

    There a reason this team is always dead last in the east.notice how the giants don’t have these problems.

    Go home

  19. seatownballers says: Feb 19, 2014 4:39 PM

    Life stinks. I made big dough in Washington, and now no one wants me. Guess I better smoke a bunch of weed since its almost legal anyways.

    -by the time he gets sober and healthy he be playing in Winnipeg

    Playing for the Minnesota Vikings is actually very much like being suspended indefinitely.

  21. DaveKShape says: Feb 19, 2014 4:42 PM

    You would have to assume that this guy just doesn’t like playing football very much. What a waste.

  22. drsportsjock says: Feb 19, 2014 4:43 PM

    The doctor diagnosed Fred Davis with being an idiot long ago

  23. nomoreseasontix says: Feb 19, 2014 4:43 PM

    Time for the fall-back career.

    Do these guys even have fall-back careers anymore? I don’t think they do. All they’re interested in is something that pays millions.

    It is well known that Achilles tendon tears are common to juicers.

    Fred Davis future looked bright before his Achilles tear in 2012.

    I wonder what all this really means.

    LOL…. hmm.

  25. doctorrustbelt says: Feb 19, 2014 4:48 PM

    That Said… when we age…. our Achilles get weaker.

    I don’t want to jinx myself.

    Fred Davis.. career #2:

    “Good evening sir. Are you happy with your long distance provider? I have a very special offer for you”

  27. stoptrippn says: Feb 19, 2014 4:59 PM

    Purely the idiot of the day

  28. realfootballfan says: Feb 19, 2014 6:16 PM

    Career over.

  29. selldannysell says: Feb 19, 2014 9:30 PM

    And the legacy of Vinny Cerrato lives on.

  30. claimersays says: Feb 21, 2014 9:41 PM

    And now he’s reunited with Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas rounding out the top of that draft class for the Skins. All in street clothes wondering what in the hell happened. Davis showed real potential early, but Shanny never seemed to trust him or value him even before his injury. He and Portis.
