Chris Cooley agrees to rejoin Redskins after Fred Davis suffers season-ending injury
By Mark Maske, Published: October 21


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. —Chris Cooley has agreed to rejoin the Washington Redskins, a person familiar with the situation said Sunday night, hours after the team lost fellow tight end Fred Davis to a season-ending torn left Achilles’ tendon suffered during a loss to the New York Giants.

Cooley is scheduled to undergo a physical Monday and, barring any unexpected last-minute snags, his re-signing will become official after that, the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the Redskins had made no official announcement about the pending move.

“It’s going to happen,” the person said.

Cooley declined to comment when reached Sunday night, saying it would be premature but that he will address the issue as soon as possible.

The Redskins released Cooley, their career leader in catches by a tight end, before the season but left open the possibility of re-signing him, particularly if they suffered an injury at the position. Cooley drew interest from other NFL teams as a free agent but wasn’t interested in playing elsewhere for a minimum-salary contract. He said recently that he wanted to return to the Redskins if the team wanted him back.

Davis’s injury created a need for the Redskins. Coach Mike Shanahan confirmed the tear to Davis’s left Achilles’ tendon and said the tight end is not expected to play again this season. The injury leaves the team without its leader in catches and receiving yards.

I don't know why I'm entertained by the amount of poetic justice here, but I am. I seriously hope Cooley goes off the rest of the season. Just not against the Birds...

Offseason questions: What kind of a deal should the Redskins offer Fred Davis?
Posted by Mike Jones on February 12, 2013 at 7:01 am


Taking a look at more offseason question areas for the Washington Redskins, today we consider the case of Fred Davis.

After Davis put up career numbers in a 12-game, suspension-shortened 2011 season, the second-round pick’s contract expired last year. Rather than allowing him to hit the free agent market, the Redskins used the franchise tag on him and paid him just less than $5.5 million for the 2012 season.

Davis entered last season with three goals: proving that he had matured and learned his lesson from the drug suspension; helping his team reverse its losing ways; and earning a big payday in the offseason that would follow.

Davis got off to a bit of a slow start before having a season’s-best outing against Cincinnati with seven catches for 90 yards.

But four games later, his season came to an end when he ruptured his left Achilles’ tendon.

The Redskins received decent production from Logan Paulsen with Davis out, but Paulsen doesn’t boast the same type of speed and explosiveness.

According to CBS' Jason La Canfora, the Browns have interest in free agent Fred Davis.
The Browns aren't ready to thrust intriguing prospect Jordan Cameron into a full-time role. Davis is rehabbing from an Achilles' tear, but proved to be a difference-making pass-catcher after taking over for Chris Cooley in 2011. If truly 100 percent, he'd have great upside in Rob Chudzinski's tight-end friendly scheme.

Redskins UFA tight end Fred Davis to meet with Jets

The Jets have been keeping their eye out for another tight end to pair with Jeff Cumberland, and former Redskin Fred Davis might be next.

Davis, who is coming off an Achilles injury, recently dined with brass from Buffalo and has drawn some interest from a few other teams.

"We'll see what happens, I have a good feeling with them, they're a good group of guys," Davis said of Buffalo in an interview with Pro Football Central.

According to a person familiar with the situation, that list includes the Jets, who have expressed at least some level of interest.

Davis confirmed as much in the PFC interview.

"I'm taking a visit there (with the Jets) in a couple of days," he said.

Update:

Fred Davis (Achilles') "appears to have recaptured his speed and explosiveness."
Davis has shown no signs of the rupture that ended his 2012 season. Per the Washington Post, he "has run routes without limitation and gotten open, beating coverage by linebackers and safeties." An athletic and big (6'4/258) tight end with solid route-running chops, Davis should start creeping up draft boards. He was on pace for 54 catches and 742 yards before going down in Week 7 last year.
