The Washington Redskins are looking to make some serious upgrades over the offseason, and the main upgrade that the team wants to make is finding targets for Robert Griffin III. One guy that thought he’d be benefiting from the arrival of RGIII was tight end Fred Davis, but according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Davis might not be catching balls from anyone for a long time.

La Canfora reports that the NFL is looking at suspending Davis for the first six-games of the 2014 season, something that will hurt him in free agency.


As La Canfora mentions, Davis is a free agent this offseason, and the Redskins were already half-out when it came to his future with the team. There were doubts that he’d even make the roster in 2013, but any hope he has of making the Redskins roster in 2014 seems unlikely.

Not only does Davis have to worry about the Redskins not wanting to bring him back, he has to worry about other teams in the NFL not wanting to pay him either.
