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.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

Marvel and Sony Reach Agreement For Spiderman

However, "the last 24 hours have been really exciting."* Kudos to you if you didn't need to look up that quote... damn you if you did. *Dr. Okun - Independence Day

Feige will be involved in Spiderman's 2017 standalone fil…
