Reinstated TE Davis Signs with Patriots


Less than a week after being reinstated by the NFL, tight end Fred Davis found a landing spot.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Davis has agreed to a one-year deal with the New England Patriots, according to a source informed of the deal.

Davis was suspended indefinitely in February of 2014 for repeated violations of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. He missed all of last season.

The 29-year-old tight end earned career highs in 2011 with 59 receptions for 796 yards. Since that season he’s compiled just 31 catches for 395 yards.
