Draft Scout Fred Davis News
02/20/14 - TE Fred Davis was suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The suspension begins immediately.
Davis, 28, is set to become a free agent in March. He previously served a four-game suspension for a failed drug test in 2011.
Davis said Wednesday the suspension stems from a supplement he took that contained a banned substance.
"In the past, I made the mistake of knowingly ingesting a banned substance," he said in a statement. "For over two years, I've worked very hard to eliminate marijuana from my life, and I have not had a positive test for it since 2011. Unfortunately, a couple of months ago I took a supplement that contained a banned substance. I now know that supplements are not regulated by the FDA and may contain banned substances.
"The NFL policy is strict, and not knowing that a supplement might contain a banned substance doesn't excuse a violation of the policy. I've worked closely with the NFLPA and NFL to resolve this violation, and I will be permitted to apply for reinstatement in the fall. I look forward to staying in football shape, remaining in compliance with the NFL policy, and having a chance to get back on the field to contribute to a team's success next season."
Davis may have limited options in the NFL. Aside from the off-the-field issues, Davis had just seven catches for 70 yards with a touchdown in 10 games in 2013. He was also slowed by injuries.
Davis, a second-round pick in 2008, has 162 career receptions, with a career high of 59 in 2011.
12/18/13 - TE Fred Davis needs seven catches to tie Bill Anderson for fourth by a Redskins tight end with 168.
11/26/13 - TE Fred Davis was expected to replace Jordan Reed (concussion) against the 49ers, but played only 10 snaps with Logan Paulsen getting the start amid reports that Davis missed meetings during the week.
"I don't go through what we do with discipline with players, but if somebody does miss a meeting [or] if somebody is late, we've got fines, we've got possible suspensions if I feel a guy is not doing what he needs to do to help our football team win," coach Mike Shanahan said Tuesday. "Any type of discipline we do have – and we have some pretty strong discipline with missing meetings or being late, those type of things – is because everybody is accountable and everybody's time is very valuable. If I did have something like that with Fred, I would address him individually."
11/24/13 - TE Fred Davis will be activated for the first time since Week 6 with Jordan Reed (concussion) out vs. the 49ers.
10/20/13 - TE Fred Davis is inactive for the Redskins.
