The Redskins have an important decision to make regarding soon to be free agent tight end Fred Davis, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
If Davis is able to return to the form he displayed in 2011, when he put up Pro Bowl numbers, he is extremely valuable. But given his injury and the uncertainty surrounding it, he might find it difficult to demand top dollar in that $7 million a year range, like the five-year $35 million deal Seattles Zach Miller signed two years ago.
One league insider said that the Redskins, or some other team with interest in Davis, could offer him a multi-year deal despite his injury-shortened 2012 campaign. But they said to protect themselves, teams could structure the deals they offer Davis in a way that would lessen the payout in the event of an unsuccessful return from injury.
