Free agent tight end Vernon Davis has agreed to terms with the Redskins, Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports reported Thursday.
Davis was traded from the 49ers to the Broncos last season, but he did not play a role in the offense during the Broncos’ Super Bowl run. Davis caught 18 passes with the 49ers last season and 20 with the Broncos. He has 55 career touchdown receptions but just two in the last two seasons.
A first-round pick of the 49ers in 2006 when Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan worked for the 49ers, Davis, 32, is a native of Washington, D.C. He visited his hometown team early in the free agency period.
Davis said earlier this month that he wanted to play four or five more years. With the Redskins, he’ll try to start by proving he can still be an impact player in 2016.
