Depends on whether you want the money on a stinker team, or have a shot to play for a championship. Let's hope he wants the championship.

Same case with 'Zo. I mean, if he goes to Arizona, he's basically saying he's okay with not being on a playoff team for at least the next 2 or 3 years. We'll just have to wait and see...

Got hope/pray that his injury and previous drug issues discount his asking price or at least scare off potential suitors.

The more TE's that sign, and I really haven't heard FD's name out there in the twitterverse, makes me think the reality of injury/suspension risk may keep him here. The Skins are trying to do right, but it's reasonable to test the market. I think the market is telling Fred he is best served staying as a Skin. One thing to believe, is that if he gets a 2-3 year "lowball" deal (not real low, just not top 5 TE stuff) then he will still be in his prime, have the Skins on his side, and we won't be hampered by a cap penalty. In other words, biding his time, betting on himself, and the Skins willingness to pay their own, could be a long term win for both sides. Of course I doubt much of that will go into his decision making.

Browns could still make more deals today. Have some interest in Redskins TE Fred Davis

Re: 4:00 Free Agent Shot Caller

I know sometimes, understandably, it's just a money thing, but seriously, for your long term career status who would you want throwing you the ball:

A) RGIII, Capt Kirk

or

B) Brandon Weeden, ???

I hope RGIII can use some of his charisma on FD's return chances

Great POINTS!

His numbers are going be bigger on this team then say CLE. I mean would we have know a guy named Bill Cartwright if he had not played with Micheal Jordan?

Hopefully F. Davis sees the big picture in his decision making.

Re: 4:00 Free Agent Shot Caller

Yep, a lot of this talk really goes to show how much of a difference maker an RG3-type player can be for your franchise. Not only do you have one of the most dynamic playmakers in the NFL, but he also keeps guys around and can help persuade FAs to come aboard (Pierre Garcon?). If sexy rexy was still our QB going forward, I think 'Zo and FD would have already made up their minds to go elsewhere...

Re: 4:00 Free Agent Shot Caller

Well the good news is if FD goes to another team we could just extend Cooley's contract. No reason Cooley could not double or triple his production from last year.

You mean Cooley might have three whole catches?

Cooley is done, didn't everyone get that memo seeing him last season?

I'm still amazed that people haven't let go or seen the obvious truth.

Re: 4:00 Free Agent Shot Caller

Facepalm

I'm amazed after he had only one catch last year people could not tell that was a joke when I said he might be able to double or triple his production over last year.

Yeah I figured that was the case, just getting ahead of things though. It's inevitable that someone is going to bring up CC as a possible solution at TE if Davis leaves.
