The Washington Redskins announced Friday that tight end Fred Davis has signed his franchise tender for the 2012 season.
The 26-year-old is coming of a career season in 2011 where he set single season highs in receptions (59) and receiving yards (796). His 796 receiving yards last season ranks for the fourth-most in a season by a tight end in Redskins history. In his four-year career, he has recorded 131 receptions for 1,648 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Southern California product was taken by the Redskins in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
