A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk.com the Redskins have "reached out" to franchise player TE Fred Davis about signing a long-term deal.
Per the source, however, "nothing is imminent." The July 16 deadline to sign franchise players to long-term extensions is less than two weeks away. Coming off a four-game suspension for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy, Davis would almost certainly be signing for below market value if he agreed to an extension this summer. The odds are high he plays under his one-year tender.
