The Fred Davis, ‘will he or won’t he’, saga that nobody really cared about is over.
Adam Schefter reports the Tight End has re-signed with the Washington Redskins for one year. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
Davis cancelled an arranged visit with the New York Jets yesterday, and was said to be deciding between the Buffalo Bills and the Redskins.
The injury prone USC grad started seven games for Washington last season, recording 24 catches for 325 yards. We don’t blame the guy for opting to play with Robert Griffin III rather than Tarvaris Jackson or whoever the Bills end up selecting at the draft.
After running a route to the back of the end zone in the first quarter of the Redskins’ divisional game against the Giants, Fred Davis crumbled, and suffered an apparent knee injury.
He was doing the ol’ one-leg dance while hobbling to the sideline, which means two things:
- He looked like me in da club, between glasses of gin and juice.
- The injury definitely isn’t a minor one.
He was briefly examined on the sideline, where he still wasn’t able to put any weight on his right leg. A cart was then required to take him to the locker room, and that’s still the worst form of football transportation. The Fox broadcast reported that he’s being evaluated for an Achilles’ injury, and Davis won’t return. So many ughs, so much awful.

All hail black Jesus.
It seems the term “black Jesus” is more than just an awful Everlast song, and a good way to get lost in the deepest depths of the Internet for a few hours. Black Jesus lives, and his human reincarnation is Robert Griffin III.
Fred Davis is familiar with the dogma of Black Jesus. And with unwavering confidence yesterday after Griffin’s 138 rushing yards that included two scores on the ground during Washington’s 38-26 win over Minnesota, Davis declared that the Redskins QB is in fact Black Jesus.
From the D.C. Sports Bog, behold Davis’ comments to Comcast’s Rob Carlin shortly after the game :
“You really can’t say much more,” Davis said. “I mean, like I said, he’s Black Jesus right now. He saved us today. He’s a great player. He makes plays. And he did what he had to do on that third down. We’ve been talking about him protecting himself a lot more, but he seen an opening and made a play. And what can you say? I mean, he’s a great player.”
I don’t know about you, but I believe everything an amateur lawyer tells me.
