Fred Davis vows regret for those who don’t sign him


It’s day 15 of free agency, and plenty of recognizable names remain available.

One of the most recognizable names belongs to one of the 21 franchise players from 2012: tight end Fred Davis.

Eventually, Davis will have a team. Eventually, Davis believes the other teams that don’t put him on their team will regret it.

“A lot of people are looking at the [Achilles] injury and that stuff,” Davis said during an appearance on NFL Network, via Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger. “I definitely feel like whatever team signed any tight ends right now, I’m gonna make them regret anything that they do -- AND the Redskins, too, as well -- because I know I’m gonna go out here and I’m gonna do what I have to do. And I’ll bet you next year’s gonna be a good year for me. This is the one right here. This is the big one. You ever watch Fred Sanford? He had the big one. That’s what this year is for me. Elizabeth, I’m coming!

Davis, who recently dined with the powers-that-be from Buffalo, could be coming to the Jets. Orr reports that the Jets are interested, and Davis has suggested that a visit is coming.

So, basically, don’t be the big dummy who fails to take advantage of the talents of a man who appreciates the wisdom of Fred Sanford.
