The Redskins have learned a lot through the early goings of the 2013 NFL season. Washington has found several emerging stars so far, and the premier find has been rookie tight end Jordan Reed. Reed has proved to be a tough match for opposing secondaries especially when you line up the physical tight end as a receiver. Reed has caught 26 passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns.

With the finding of Reed, has come the disappearance act of Fred Davis. Davis, who ruptured his Achilles tendon a year ago, used to be a major weapon in the Redskins arsenal, but Reed has caused Davis’s playing time to steadily diminish. With the trade deadline quickly approaching, Washington has looked to deal the fourth year tight end to a team around the league. Washington lost several draft picks for the 2014 NFL Draft, and is hoping to replenish their picks with the subtraction of Davis. Many have shown interest, but it appears that the Buffalo Bills are the top contender. For those that you do not remember, Davis was a free agent this past off-season and made a visit to the Bills prior to resigning with the Redskins.
The trade deadline stands at 4:00 PM on October 29th. In the coming days, more information will develop as to whether or not the Redskins will look to deal Davis.
