Patriots released TE Fred Davis.
Davis was a long shot to make the Patriots behind Rob Gronkowski and Scott Chandler. He'll have a chance to resurface with a team before training camp, but his career is in doubt. 29-year-old Davis hasn't had a productive season since 2011. Fri, Jun 19, 2015 05:58:00 PM

Patriots signed TE Fred Davis to a one-year contract.

Davis spent last year suspended from the NFL following repeated violations of the substance abuse policy, a DUI and a domestic incident. The 29-year-old managed to get reinstated last week and now heads to New England as a poor bet to crack the final roster. The Patriots are loaded at tight end with Scott Chandler, Michael Hoomanawanui and Tim Wright behind Rob Gronkowski. They also used a sixth-round pick on Arkansas TE AJ Derby in the draft.

Free agent TE Fred Davis has been reinstated by the NFL and is free to sign with any team.

Davis was suspended indefinitely in February of 2014 for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. Since then, he's had brushes with the law regarding a DUI and domestic violence. Josh Gordon and Justin Blackmon should be asking Davis how he got back into the league so soon. Davis, now 29 years old and four years removed from a productive season, will be lucky to make a 53-man roster. He does have a history with new Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan, and Atlanta needs tight end talent.

Washington D.C. Police have asked for the public's help in locating suspended free agent TE Fred Davis, who is wanted for domestic violence.

Details are scarce, but police say the simple assault happened on June 2 around 3 AM in the D.C. area. It's Davis' second run-in with the law since the season ended; he was booked for DUI in February. Davis, 28, is currently serving an indefinite NFL suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. His life has gone off the tracks since a breakout 2011 season.

The Washington Post reports suspended free agent TE Fred Davis was arrested and charged with DUI in Fairfax County, Va. on Thursday.

A sad situation has taken a turn for the unbelievable. According to reporter Mike Jones, Davis was arrested at 3:45 PM Thursday afternoon. Already indefinitely suspended, it's fair to wonder if Davis will ever play another NFL down even though he's only 28. Davis has to get his personal life in order before he can even think about mounting a comeback.

NFL suspended free agent TE Fred Davis indefinitely for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

It had previously been reported that Davis was facing a six-game suspension, but it's much worse. It's his third strike and second suspension; Davis was suspended four games at the end of the 2011 season. The 27-year-old couldn't have had a worse past calendar year. He played sparingly for the Redskins in 2013 due to ineffectiveness and missed meetings. Davis also reportedly took naps in team meetings. Now, he's banned indefinitely. Davis is long on talent but has proven to be his worst enemy. He won't get a deal in free agency.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports impending free agent Fred Davis is facing a six-game suspension.

La Canfora indicates it's a violation of the substance-abuse policy. At the end of the 2011 season, Davis was banned four games for a failed drug test. Davis, 28, played sparingly for Washington this past season, registering just seven catches for 70 yards and a touchdown in ten games of action. He's not going to be re-signed and is now one strike away from a yearlong ban. Davis was our No. 7 free agent tight end before word broke of this suspension. We may have to move him behind Scott Chandler and Andrew Quarless now.

Fred Davis caught one pass for nine yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Cowboys.

Davis doesn't even play on all the passing downs, a sign he's only active due to the Redskins' desperation at the position. Davis has just seven catches all year despite Jordan Reed's quad and concussion woes.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 06:19:00 PM

Fred Davis caught a 23-yard touchdown in Week 15 at Atlanta.

With Jordan Reed still sidelined with his concussion, Davis and Logan Paulsen handled tight end duties. Davis saw three targets. His touchdown catch was a perfectly placed ball in the corner of the end zone by Kirk Cousins into Davis's hands. It was Davis' first score of the season. He'll play out his final two games as a Redskin before testing free agency in March.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 07:28:00 PM

Fred Davis caught two passes for 14 yards in Week 13 against the Giants.

Davis didn't start, but played the majority of snaps in the first quarter. He managed to make his first catch since Week 4, but also had a bad drop on the Redskins' final drive of the game. Davis doesn't have any fantasy value and will likely go back to being a healthy inactive if Jordan Reed (concussion) returns next week.
Mon, Dec 2, 2013 01:25:00 AM

Coach Mike Shanahan didn't deny a report that Fred Davis missed team meetings last week leading up to Monday night's game against the 49ers.

NBC Washington reported Monday that Davis blew off team meetings last week, even though he knew he was going to be active for the first time since October 13. Davis then played 11-of-61 snaps, seeing most of his action on the final drive in the blowout loss. He wasn't targeted in the passing game and is simply playing out the final year of his contract in anticipation of free agency.
Tue, Nov 26, 2013 08:23:00 PM

Fred Davis wasn't targeted in Washington's Week 12 loss to the 49ers.

Davis played maybe a handful of snaps; we only noticed him once. He blocked on that lone play. Davis was active for the first time since Week 6 due to Jordan Reed's (concussion) absence. There was a report that Davis skipped team meetings during the week, even though he knew he was going to be active. Davis has tuned out and is simply looking forward to free agency.
Tue, Nov 26, 2013 12:29:00 AM

Redskins TE Fred Davis will be active in Week 12 against the 49ers.

Davis has been a healthy inactive the last five weeks, but is now needed with Jordan Reed (concussion) ruled out for Monday night's game. He should see the majority of passing down work over blocking TE Logan Paulsen. Davis has just three catches for 25 yards this season and is not a recommended TE2 option.
Sat, Nov 23, 2013 10:11:00 PM

Redskins declared TE Fred Davis, QB Rex Grossman, RB Chris Thompson, LB Brandon Jenkins, S Jose Gumbs, OG Josh LeRibeus and NT Chris Neild inactive for Week 10 against the Vikings.

Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) is active. According to CSN Washington, Davis is losing $500,000 in playing-time incentives by being inactive for the fifth time this evening. Otherwise, it's a quiet list for a Redskins team with relatively few injury issues heading into Week 10.
Thu, Nov 7, 2013 07:01:00 PM

Fred Davis admitted to "nodding off" during meetings.

"I've never slept through a whole meeting, but I've nodded off," Davis said after Wednesday's practice. "I mean, everyone nods off. It's dark in there. You nod off. You wake up -- go get something to drink and go back." Davis sounds like a guy trying to get released because he's disgruntled with his role behind Jordan Reed and Logan Paulsen. He said he "definitely" hoped he got moved at the deadline and claims his two straight healthy scratches are connected to the per-game active roster bonuses in his contract. Davis will only make an impact this season if Reed got hurt.
