The NFL has reinstated tight end Fred Davis following a one-year suspension for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy.
The NFL has reinstated tight end Fred Davis following a one-year suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Davis was due to become a free agent last winter when the league announced an indefinite suspension for the former Redskins player, his second suspension for a failed drug test.
Pro Football Talk reports that Davis is now free to sign with a team and join their offseason workout plans immediately.
Davis's suspension followed a 2013 campaign in which he caught just seven passes in 10 games for the Redskins, and the tight end admitted to the media that he "nodded off" in some team meetings.
