Adam Schefter reports the Jets are among teams interested in Redskins free agent tight end Fred Davis.
Redskins free-agent TE Fred Davis is scheduled to visit Bills on Wednesday. Jets and Redskins also interested.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 24, 2013
Davis is a quality receiver at the position. He posted 59 catches for 796 yards in 2011 with a Rex Grossman and John Beck quarterback combo.
He would be a nice addition to replace Dustin Keller if healthy and a good fit for the offense. As you probably guessed, Davis could be cheap since the Jets are looking into him. What is the catch? He is coming off a torn Achilles tendon, a very serious injury that can rob players of explosion. If the Jets get serious here, the medical staff will have to explore this one fully. Based on Davis' solidtrack record, it might be worth looking into.
