Davis, after reportedly canceling a Friday visit to the New York Jets and, as John Keim of The Washington Examiner said on Thursday, subsequently narrowing his choice down to the Redskins and Buffalo Bills, decided to rejoin the team that selected him in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of USC.
Through six games of the 2012 regular season, Davis was enjoying a burgeoning role as rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III's primary receiver. Then in Week 7 against the New York Giants, Davis suffered a season-ending Achilles tendon injury. For the year, he had 24 catches for 325 yards and no touchdowns.
From there, Washington's receiving corps, with the likes of Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson and Josh Morgan, had to divvy up the pass-catching opportunities provided by Griffin III as best they could. Washington brought back tight end Chris Cooley with very limited results. But tight end Logan Paulsen picked up some of the slack at the position, catching 25 passes for 308 yards and a touchdown.
Still, Davis figures to be a reliable option in the Redskins' passing game and another layer in the under-to intermediate parts of the field. This should only make those aforementioned deep threats all the more dangerous for the 2013 season.
