Vernon Davis is Coming Home

The Washington Redskins have inked two-time Pro Bowl tight end Vernon Davis to a one-year deal.

Davis will have a base salary of $2.38 million, with $1.1 million of that fully guaranteed, per CSN Mid-Atlantic. Considering his base salary makes him the highest-paid tight end on the roster, Davis will see plenty of snaps this season and likely be the No. 2 tight end behind Jordan Reed. His only competition comes from the likes of Logan Paulsen and Niles Paul; both coming off serious injuries.

Signing with the Redskins gives the 32-year-old Washington D.C. native an opportunity to come home. Davis was drafted sixth overall in the 2006 NFL Draft after attending the University of Maryland.

For his career, Davis has amassed 461 receptions for 5,841 yards and 55 touchdowns. His production has dropped over the last few seasons, but he still provides Kirk Cousins with a big-bodied red zone target.
