Fred Davis visits Bills


The Bills continue to show interest in Fred Davis.

The free-agent tight end, who has played for the Redskins the last five seasons, visited the Bills on Thursday, the club’s website reported. The club and Davis also met over the weekend.

The 27-year-old Davis caught 24 passes for 325 yards in seven games for Washington in 2012 before an Achilles injury ended his season in October.

Davis, who has gained 12.7 yards per catch in his NFL career, would add another playmaking presence to the Bills’ tight end corps. The Bills already have a solid pass-catching threat in Scott Chandler, who’s caught a half-dozen TDs in each of the last two seasons and racked up a career-best 13.3 yards per catch in 2012.

Davis ranks No. 52 on PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100.

  1. The big question is, how much cap money will the Redskins save.

    While Davis is the best TE on the roster, that is not the question now.

    The question is: is the combo of their current TEs and a new FA Corner/Safety more valuable than Davis and the current Corners/Safeties.

    I’m thinking that Paul and Paulsen are serviceable enough at TE and that it’s more valuable to get more guys in the secondary.

    As much as I hate to say it, they need to let him walk.

  2. Are teams worried about the pot smoking or is the rehab on the heel not going well? How is there not more interest in this guy?

  3. Would be a solid pickup. Davis and Chandler would be a nasty combo in the redzone.

    Achilles injuries worry me though. Players don’t usually come back strong. (Takeo Spikes, Shawne Merriman etc.)

  4. The best pick up for a rookie QB just like fitzmagic said.

    To add to that, New England has proven to us that you can never have too many tight ends.

  5. I am hoping Buffalo gets a deal done with Davis. He would pose a duel threat in the Redzone with Bills TE Scott Chandler. Also, If Chandler is not ready to come back from his injury by week 1, Davis could instantly fill his shoes. They are on the same level when it comes to pass-catching and run-blocking. Get it done Nix!

  6. He must be healing slow or something because I can’t believe there aren’t more people biting at this guy. I hate the Redskins but as a fan of football more, this guy has been a pretty valuable part of their offense over the years.
