Washington Redskins Franchise Fred Davis

The Washington Redskins have used the franchise tag on TE Fred Davis.

It was speculated for several weeks that Davis would earn the tag.

Davis, coming off of the 2011 season which saw him post career highs of 59 catches for 796 yards, and a massive 15 plays of 20+ yards, in only 12 games, will be paid $5.4M for the 2012 season unless he and the Redskins can agree to a long-term deal.

Davis was suspended the final 4 games of last season for failing the league's substance abuse policy during the lockout and early in the season on additional tests. Another violation of the policy could result in Davis being suspended an entire season, a risk many feel is too great for Davis to earn a long-term deal that isn't incentive laden rather than guaranteed money upfront.

But Davis' talents draw high praise from head coach Mike Shanahan, who has said he believes Davis is genuinely apologetic and remorseful for his actions, and will follow the correct path to ensure it never happens again.

This marks the first time the Redskins have used the franchise tag on a player since Champ Bailey in 2004, just before Joe Gibbs traded him to the Denver Broncos, then coached by Mike Shanahan, for Clinton Portis.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
