Patriots sign TE Fred Davis


The Patriots have signed tight end Fred Davis, formerly of the Washington Redskins.

Davis was suspended indefinitely in February of 2014 for repeated violations of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

He was reinstated last week by the NFL.

He has agreed to a one-year deal with the Pats, according to Ian Rapoport. 

His best year was in 2011 with the Redskins when he caught 59 receptions for 796 yards and 3 touchdowns. In 2009, he caught 6 touchdowns.

In 2013, before the suspension, he caught 7 catches for 70 yards.

As the Redskins went down, so did he.

Davis was once viewed as a pro – bowl level and will be a bargain for the Pats. If he wows, they find a gem, but if he doesn’t, they cut him and move on.

Davis is a 6’4, 247 pound tight end.

The tight end position is deep. They have Gronk, Chandler, Hoomanawanui, Wright, and 6th round pick A.J. Derby.
