Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis joined 106.7 The Fan’s Holden and Danny Show after Tuesday’s morning practice and discussed the Tight End situation on the Redskins and his drug suspension from 2011 as well.
Davis mentioned that the multiple failed drug tests were a result of the tests being every week for three weeks and the drug not being out of his system – not him continuing to smoke marijuana.
Davis was unapologetic, but swore that the last time he smoked marijuana was “over a year ago” – presumably the time that got him in trouble.
“The bottom line is I did, who cares if it was repeated or not. The bottom line, to me, is that I made the choice to smoke it,” said Davis. “People make it seem worse [than it is], I don’t really worry about it. I know what I’m going to do, and not do.”
Davis is facing a one-year suspension for another violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.
After a tumultuous season last year and spending time in court defending himself this off-season, Davis is just looking to move on and focusing on this upcoming season.
“We are very strong at that [Tight End] position, I feel like we have a lot of depth, and are learning very fast.”
