Fred Davis re-signs with Washington Redskins

Tom Szczerbowski

The Bills have now missed out on signing Davis and Delanie Walker this off-season.

A day after making a free agent visit with the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park, tight end Fred Davis has agreed to a one-year deal to remain with the Washington Redskins, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

As we pointed out earlier this morning (citing a Washington Examiner report from Thursday evening), the Bills offered Davis more money than did the Redskins. In the end, quarterback stability was likely the chief rationale for Davis re-signing in Washington.

Davis, with whom Bills brass dined in Washington last weekend, was the second athletic tight end that the Bills tried and failed to sign this off-season, as they had previously expressed interest in former San Francisco 49ers backup Delanie Walker. He signed a four-year, $17.5 million deal with the Tennessee Titans on March 12. Their search will continue, then, as the team looks to both complement and hedge its bets with two-year starter Scott Chandler, who is coming off of ACL surgery.

To this point in the off-season, the Bills have still only signed one free agent that spent 2012 in a different city: likely new starting strong-side linebacker Manny Lawson, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals.
