Reports: Tight end Fred Davis picks Redskins over Bills

Free agent tight end Fred Davis has decided to return to the Redskins, according to reports.

Davis, 27, has agreed on a one-year deal to remain with the Redskins as first reported by ESPN.com's Adam Schefter.

Davis met with the Bills on Thursday. He was left to decide between offers from the Bills and Redskins after cancelling a visit with the Jets.

He was paid $5.446 million in base salary under the Redskins' franchise tag last season.

The Redskins' second-round draft pick in 2008 told BuffaloBills.com he'll be ready to start the season despite having surgery on his Achilles' tendon just four months ago that usually requires a year of rehabilitation. He caught 24 passes for 325 yards in seven games before sustaining the injury in 2012.

“I’m way ahead of schedule for me. I don’t know what it is for most guys,” he told BuffaloBills.com. “Terrell Suggs had his surgery and he came back in five months and played the last few games. Depending on how bad your Achilles was depends, but for me it’s been maybe four and a half months and I’m running on the treadmill, doing drills, so I’m way ahead of schedule.”
