"I've never slept through a whole meeting, but I've nodded off,'' Davis said after practice, according to USAToday.com's Jim Corbett. "I mean everyone nods off. It's dark in there. You nod off. You wake up -- go get something to drink and go back. I've done that.''
Add it to the ever-growing list of reasons why the team wanted to trade him.
Turns out, the feeling was mutual. Davis was hoping for a fresh start too.
“I thought [a trade] might [be a] possibility,” he said, via the Washington Times. “But when I really thought about it, because next year I'll be a free agent anyway and for someone to give up a draft pick for a guy to be a free agent next year, I don't think that would make sense. ...
"It's frustrating not to be out there because I know there are plays I could make,'' Davis continued. "I just want to play. I like it here. I was drafted here. But at the same time, I want to play. If I can't play here, then, I'd rather play somewhere else.''
The Redskins selected Davis in the second round of the 2008 draft. That year the team used its two other second-round picks on wide receivers Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly. Thomas lasted two and a half seasons in Washington (40 receptions, 445 yards, 3 TDs) and Kelly appeared in just 10 games over two seasons (28 receptions, 365 yards, 0 TDs).
Davis, meanwhile, was one of the league's best tight ends in 2011 (he ranked sixth, according to Football Outsiders), and was off to a strong start last season before he was sidelined with an Achilles injury. Now, with the emergence of rookie Jordan Reed, Davis has become an afterthought.
“I feel like I can block and catch the ball,” Davis said. “I am surprised that we're both not out there. But like I said, I think that's the way they want to go with it."
Wherever Davis ends up next season, he'll probably be well rested. So there's that.
