The Washington Redskins have been very pleased with the emergence of rookie tight end Jordan Reed, so much so that they’re ready to move on from the player who they though would be their long-term solution at TE.
After losing his starting job to Reed, Fred Davis is likely on his way out of Washington soon, and it could be by the time the NFL trading deadline has expired:
Redskins are trying to trade TE Fred Davis, per league source.

Davis is set to become a free agent after the season and was inactive for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears. Expect to see him take anything they can get for him, even if it’s a conditional draft pick, and no one may even offer that at this point.
Davis signed a one-year deal after spending 2012 under the franchise tag, but has appeared in just four games with two starts while catching three passes for 25 yards.
