Fred Davis signs Tender

Postby tribeofjudah » Fri Mar 16, 2012 3:30 pm

There you have it.

Davis signs franchise tender
What that essentially means is that Davis signed a one-year guaranteed contract worth approximately $5.4 million.

He could have decided not to sign the tender. He still would have been bound to the Redskins as their franchise player but he would not have to attend any mandatory team practices such as minicamp or training camp. The risk that Davis would run in doing this would be that the team could withdraw the tender at any time.

Davis was in the midst of having a breakout season last year when he was suspended for the last four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. At the time of his suspension he had 59 receptions for 796 yards and three touchdowns.

Although Davis and the team could still negotiate a long-term contract that is said to be unlikely given last year’s suspension. He will likely have to show that he is not at risk of getting slapped with a future suspension.

so one person sharpens another.

I hope we can get a long term deal done now and not wait until next off-season to do something. I hate the skins don't try to lock of their vets to extensions. Philly always seems to take care of their own and they do it early and when doing so they probably get bargains.

What? The Smeagols' history is littered with FAs they let go rather than pay.

You just picked what might be the worst example of "taking care of their own" in the NFL. :lol: Maybe the Patriots could be called worse, but Philly is near or at the top . . .

I think this was a good move. Keep him for another year to see if he's worth a long term deal.

Both are essentially going nowhere and both are under a microscope

they are now experiencing the Redskins version of ZERO tolerance


HOPEFULLY these 2 have seen the light and will make a huge effort to show they're really sorry about letting themselves and their team down - BIG TIME

OTHERWISE .... you're outa here

Robert has to make a huge effort to show he's got what it takes to be a future great QB - we need the real RG3 not the hyped version

As soon as I saw "franchise" I knew something was up, and looked at the date.

Well the Browns signed Davis ... :lol:

I think we can be pretty sure that Fred will be playing with Robert again
