Fred Davis is not having a great 2013 season. The Washington Redskins‘ tight end has bee inactive as of late and thus far, he’s only caught three passes for 25 yards. At one time it looked like Davis was going to be a reliable piece of the Redskins’ offense for years to come. But injuries limited him in 2012 and in 2013 he’s just being outplayed by Logan Paulsen and others.
Now, we might have an idea as to why Davis has fallen off. Here’s a recent quote form the TE, where he admits to falling asleep during team meetings:
“I’ve never slept through a whole meeting, but I’ve nodded off. 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.”
So not only does Davis incriminate himself, he incriminates his teammates at the same time. Oh yeah, everybody nods off during team meetings. Somehow, I just have a hard time buying that. But at the same time, I wouldn’t be that surprised if in fact his claim is true.
Davis’ name was kicked around a lot recently in trade rumors, but obviously he didn’t get dealt at the deadline. The reason for this is said to be that teams believe he will be released in the near future. Based on his spot on the depth chart at this time, I don’t think those rumors are too far off.
