Fred Davis to visit Jets |
Free agent tight end Fred Davis hasn’t wavered in his desire to return to the Redskins. But he’s also looking out for his future, which is why he’s added a second visit to an AFC East team for this week. Davis, already scheduled to be in Buffalo on Wednesday, will visit the New York Jets at the end of the week, an NFL source confirmed this morning. Davis had told the Pro Football Central podcast that he was going to meet with the Jets. Earlier this week an NFL source said the Jets’ interest in him was on the backburner for now. But perhaps with the Bills showing more interest, having met with him in Washington as well, the Jets wanted to at least get involved and check him out, especially from a medical standpoint. Davis is coming off a ruptured Achilles’ tendon.

RGIII texts Trey Wingo about his knee
My knee is getting better every day. The doctors say I’m ahead of schedule. My goal is to return healthy in week one but if I’m not ready then i will wait until i am, however long that is. My first NFL season and my injury that ended it showed me a lot about the league, my team and myself. i know where my responsibility is within the dilemma that led to me having surgery to repair my knee and all parties involved know their responsibilities as well. I m looking forward to playing the game we all love so much again and not behind at the negative. thanks for the overwhelming level of support that i’ve received, sic em bears and hail to the redskins!!

Cornerback Antoine Winfield is visiting Redskins Park today. The Redskins would like to sign him to boost their ailing defensive secondary. Meanwhile, tight end Fred Davis is shuffling off to Buffalo, where the Bills organization will try to persuade him that frigid temperatures really aren’t that bad and that they fully intend to find an upgrade to Tavaris Jackson at quarterback.

Redskins still have little flexibility as conservative free agency approach continues
As of late Monday, the Redskins still had very little wiggle room under the league’s $123 million spending limit. Taking into account the salaries of the top 51 players (during the offseason, only those count against the cap) and the $18 million penalty, Washington is believed to be around $3 million under the cap, two league sources said.

Antoine Winfield considering other offers in advance of visit with Redskins
Although he is scheduled to pay the Redskins a visit Wednesday, free agent cornerback Antoine Winfield is also considering offers from at least two other teams, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. One of the teams interested in the services of the three-time Pro Bowl player is the Minnesota Vikings, Winfield’s employer for the last nine seasons. The Vikings released Winfield earlier this month because he was owed a salary of $7.25 million.

Randall Cunningham at 50: A fantasy innovator -
Anyone who knows anything about football video games will tell you that there was no greater digital athlete than Bo Jackson in Tecmo Super Bowl. I’m not silly enough to argue that premise. But I would like to introduce you to a man known simply as QB Eagles. Why his name never appeared in the game is beyond me. He could throw the ball 70 yards and run like the wind. QB Eagles was a dual-threat like none other in the game, capable of throwing for 3,000 and rushing for another 1,000 — no small feat with just five minute quarters. In real life, QB Eagles did have a name. It was Randall Cunningham.
