Davis was injured in the Redskins’ 7th game of the season, rupturing his Achilles tendon. According to the Washington Post back in February, Davis is ahead of schedule in his rehab.
Davis is a Toledo, Ohio native who has had some success with the Redskins. His best year was 2011, in which he caught 59 passes for 796 yards and 3 touchdowns. For his career, Davis has caught 155 passes for 1,973 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Davis is 27 years old, and would easily be the best receiving TE on the Browns roster should he choose Cleveland.
