Davis has signed a three-year deal to remain with Washington, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

In his first season with Washington, the 33-year-old played in 16 games, logging 44 receptions (on 59 targets) for 583 yards and two TDs. In the process, he helped give the Washington offense a potent one-two punch at tight end along with Jordan Reed, who turned in a 66/686/6 stat line in 12 contests. This coming season, Davis profiles as a depth fantasy option, though his value would see an uptick in the event of an injury to Reed. While the re-signing of Davis solidifies the team's TE corps, the status of QB Kirk Cousins remains somewhat unsettled, while top wideouts Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson could potentially depart via free agency.

Davis has expressed interest in re-signing with Washington, Peter Hailey of CSNMidAtlantic.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran tight end signed on with Washington last season and proved he still has something left in the tank, recordeding 44 receptions for 583 yards and two touchdowns. Davis appears to have created a special bond with head coach Jay Gruden, citing him as a major reason for his desire to re-sign. "I love him, I love him, and that's one of the other reasons that I wouldn't mind staying here," Davis noted. It appears as if the ball sits in Washington's court, with tight ends Jordan Reed, Derek Carrier, Niles Paul, and Wes Saxton already under contract, the team will have to decide if keeping the former Pro Bowler around is worth the cost.

Davis hauled in two receptions for 49 yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran tight end had a resurgence this season, recording 44 receptions for 583 yards and two touchdowns, his highest totals since the 2013. Davis was written off as an afterthought to much of the league, considering his lackluster performances in San Fransisco and Denver last year. Washington inked the veteran to a one-year deal in the hopes that they could transition the former playmaker into a run blocking specialist. However, with several injuries to Jordan Reed, Davis found himself as the starter in many games throughout the season and made the most of his opportunities. Now 32, it remains unseen what the former Pro Bowler will do next season, but after this bounce back season he may have some teams knocking at his door.

Davis recorded one catch for 13 yards in Saturday's win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Davis had a quiet day filling in for regular starter Jordan Reed, who was inactive with a shoulder injury. Davis could get the start in Week 17 against the Giants should Reed's status fail to improve. Look for more updates on the tight end situation to come throughout the week.

Davis recorded four receptions for 23 yards in Monday's loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Davis didn't have much in the way of yards on Monday but he was targeted a season-high nine times. With Washington headed to Chicago in Week 16, Davis could have a nice performance if he sees a similar amount of targets against a struggling Bears' secondary.

Davis recorded one reception for one yard in Sunday's win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Davis, who was primarily brought in to be a run blocker, had his quietest game of the season Sunday. Both Davis and starting tight end Jordan Reed had their least productive performances of the year, which may be more of a nod towards the Eagles' defense than the Redskins' offensive game plan. They'll both look to get back on track Monday night against the Panthers.

Davis caught five of six targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 31-23 loss at Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Davis was held in check for most of the game, but snagged two passes for 29 yards late in the fourth quarter. It remains to be seen how long Jordan Reed (shoulder) will be out of the lineup, but Davis will remain involved either way. Next week, he'll face the Eagles in Philadelphia.

With teammate Jordan Reed (shoulder) ruled out, Davis is expected to start at tight end Sunday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Davis served as Washington's primary tight end when Reed was sidelined during Weeks 6 and 7 this season and accumulated eight catches on 10 targets for 129 yards and a touchdown in those appearances. Furthermore, he's gone for at least 50 yards in every game but one since then. That should comfort the Redskins offense in Reed's absence, even though the Cardinals secondary could make passing the ball harder than usual Sunday.

Davis hauled in five receptions for 68 yards in the Redskins' Thanksgiving loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Starting tight end Jordan Reed went down with a shoulder injury early in the second quarter, which subsequently provided Davis an opportunity to get some more looks. Reed was able to return from the injury, and record two touchdowns, but it was confirmed after the game that he suffered an AC joint separation. Davis would presumably be the beneficiary if Davis is forced to miss any time. The Redskins will take on the Cardinals in Arizona in Week 12.

Davis was targeted once but didn't record a catch in Sunday's win over Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Davis just missed on a connection up the seam with quarterback Kirk Cousins. The miss helped snap a four game streak in which Davis tallied at least 50 yards per game and scored two touchdowns. Washington's receivers stole the show on Sunday, but with Washington's passing game heating up -three games with at least 300 yards in the last four outings - expect Davis to be a beneficiary given his red-zone acumen.
