As we approach tomorrow’s trade deadline, it’s time to take a look at what players could be moved before 4 p.m. ET on Oct. 29. One of those players could be Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis. After showing plenty of promise earlier in his pro career, injuries derailed Davis.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk passed along the news a few days ago:

Now that he is healthy and ready to go, the Redskins have chosen to give Davis a reduced role in the offense as they work Jordan Reed into a much bigger role. So far, it has worked out for the team, but they are still struggling to produce wins.

Reed has the better chemistry with Robert Griffin III, so it only makes sense to move forward with Reed as the No. 1 tight end, but whether or not Davis is shipped off to a new team remains to be seen.
