Fred Davis was the subject of some NFL trade deadline talks but ultimately ended up staying with the Redskins. In an interview with USA Today he was pretty open about some things during his time with Washington: “I’ve never slept through a whole meeting, but I’ve nodded off,” Davis said after practice, according to USAToday.com’s Jim Corbett. “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.” This isn’t the best thing to admit, especially when it sounds like he actually wanted to be traded: “I thought [a trade] might [be a] possibility,” he said, via the Washington Times. “But when I really thought about it, because next year I’ll be a free agent anyway and for someone to give up a draft pick for a guy to be a free agent next year, I don’t think that would make sense. … “It’s frustrating not to be out there because I know there are plays I could make,” Davis continued. “I just want to play. I like it here. I was drafted here. But at the same time, I want to play. If I can’t play here, then, I’d rather play somewhere else.” I give him credit for being honest about sleeping and wanting to get a chance to actually make plays. I just wonder how that will go over during his free agency this offseason. Perhaps he should pick up some energy drinks for the next meeting.
