WASHINGTON – A person familiar with the deal says tight end Fred Davis has agreed to a one-year contract to remain with the Washington Redskins.
The person said Friday that Davis opted to remain with the Redskins after exploring options with the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has yet to announce the deal.
Davis might have been one of the most coveted tight ends on the free agent market if he were healthy, but he's recovering from a torn left Achilles suffered in a loss to the New York Giants in October.
He had 24 catches for 325 yards in seven games last year. The 2008 second-round pick has 155 receptions for 1,973 yards and 12 touchdowns in five Redskins seasons.
