Tight end Fred Davis can make up to $3.75 million in the 2013 season, according to the terms in his newly-signed one-year deal.
The five-year veteran re-signed with Washington on Friday after being courted seriously by the Buffalo Bills, and after also drawing interest from the New York Jets. Davis, who is still recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured left Achilles’ tendon, which he suffered in Week 7, traveled to Buffalo to visit the team at its facilities, and was scheduled to visit the Jets. But he canceled that visit and returned to Washington. The next morning, he inked a deal to remain with the team that drafted him in the second round out of Southern California in 2008.
A person with knowledge of the situation said Davis’ one-year deal has a $1 million base salary, and a signing bonus of $1.5 million, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed. The contract also includes up to $1.25 million in incentives. The cap hit for the one-year deal is $2.5 million. The salary-cap strapped Redskins last week had just more than $3 million in cap space.
