Fred Davis admits he nodded off in team meetings

The Washington Redskins and tight end Fred Davis seem to be at a stand-off of sorts. Davis has dropped down the depth chart behind Jordan Reed. Davis has been inactive the past two weeks and thinks that the Redskins are doing it because of a clause in his contract tied to the amount of games he is active for.

“Probably. It’s a business,” Davis said, via the Washington Post. So I’m sure that plays a factor. Jordan [Reed, the team’s rookie tight end] is on a third-round deal so, you know, you can always keep him around for a while.”

If they’re going to make him inactive, Davis is rewarding them with the same amount of effort.

“I’ve never slept through a whole meeting, but I’ve nodded off,” Davis said. “I mean, everyone nods off. It’s dark in there. You nod off. You wake up — go get something to drink and go back.

“I’ve done that.”

The trade deadline came and went with out Davis being moved. Unlike Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, he didn’t to stay put. He wanted to go to a new team.

“Definitely,” he told USA Today. “If I was on another team, you’d see what I can do.”
