Vernon Davis returns home, signs with Redskins

The Washington Redskins have found a talented tight end in Jordan Reed over the last few seasons, but that does not mean they would turn down some veteran help. They are getting just that as they just signed tight end Vernon Davis.

Davis, who is from the Washington D.C. area, agreed to a deal with the Redskins, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. The news was broken Thursday afternoon and it seems like a big signing for the Redskins.

Davis spent the first ten years of his career with the San Francisco 49ers after being drafted in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He was traded to the Denver Broncos in the middle of the 2015 season, where he produced very little for the Super Bowl champions.

While he has only scored two touchdowns over the last two seasons, Vernon Davis has proven his worth as a tight end across his 10-year career. He has recorded over 5,800 yards and 55 touchdowns and twice he has recorded 13 touchdowns (2009, 2013).

Davis may not be the same top ten tight end he was when he got drafted, but he could do wonders for helping out the Redskins in defending their NFC East championship in 2016.
