07:30 PM ET 03.07 | Fred Davis is set to become a free agent this Tuesday but a report out of Washington suggests otherwise as John Keim of the Washington Examiner is reporting the Redskins are expected to re-sign the tight end at some point over the course of the next few days. Davis tore his Achilles' last season and saw his numbers take a significant hit. This led many to believe that Washington had moved on from him, but as Keim points out, the Redskins have all the leverage in negotiations. Davis wasn't setting the world on fire before he tore his Achilles', but having Robert Griffin III as your quarterback can never hurt, even if Davis' 2012 season never took off. Washington currently has tight end Logan Paulsen under contract, but Davis' ceiling remains much higher and he's cost effective as well, especially when compared to Dustin Keller or Jared Cook. It's low-risk, high-reward for the Redskins and they have very little to lose by bringing Davis back for another year, which is what they will more than likely do.

This is a no brainer, they can get him for a lot less money than other tight ends!
