ASHBURN, Va. — Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis has been suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

The league made the announcement today.

It’s the second substance-abuse suspension for Davis. He was also sanctioned for the final four games of the 2011 season.

Davis is set to become a free agent next month. He caught only seven passes last season and was passed on the depth chart by rookie Jordan Reed. Davis also admitted to nodding off during team meetings and voiced a desire to play for another team after he was put on the inactive list for multiple games.

Davis, a Rogers High School graduate, was a second-round draft pick by the Redskins in 2008. His best season was 2011, when he had 59 catches for 796 yards before his first suspension.
