The Redskins signed tight end Jordan Reed to a contract extension last offseason and he turned in a season that looked a lot like the ones that earned him a new deal.
Reed was a frequent and productive target in the passing game while also dealing with a concussion and shoulder injury that limited him to 12 games during the regular season. Reed has never played all 16 games in a year, something the team tried to protect themselves against by signing Vernon Davis as a free agent.
Davis fit the bill quite well. He caught 44 passes for 583 yards and two touchdowns to provide cover when Reed was out as well as another good option on offense when Reed was in the lineup. It’s a role that Davis, who is set to be a free agent, would like to play again next season.
