Washington Redskins Reportedly Place Franchise Tag on Fred Davis

Redskins Beat writer Chris Russell just reported that the Redskins have used their franchise tag on tight end Fred Davis.

Davis was suspended for the last four games of the season due to a violation of the league's drug policy. It's believed that one more violation could lead to a year long suspension. Up until the suspension, Davis was among the Redskins leading receivers with 59 receptions for 796 yards and three touchdowns.

We've all been expecting it for a while now, but it sounds as though it's official.

The franchise tag for tight ends this season is expected to be about $5.5 million.

Update: To provide more validity to the story, John Keim just confirmed via his twitter:
