Redskins are trying to move Fred Davis


It’s a good thing they didn’t change the name to Fredskins.

Washington tight end Fred Davis, who recently suggested a name based on his name for the only NFL team for which he has played, is being actively shopped, per a league source.

The trade deadline arrives in eight days.

Davis, who signed a one-year deal after spending 2012 under the franchise tag, has appeared in four games with two starts, catching three passes for 25 yards.

Last year, Davis tore an Achilles tendon in the team’s seventh game of the year.

He has a base salary of $1 million.
