Report: ‘Nothing Resolved’ at Talks Between Redskins, Davis and Grossman
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins are still hoping to find a way to re-sign Fred Davis and Rex Grossman as they continue to juggle finances in wake of a $36 million salary cap penalty imposed by the NFL.
Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for both players, met with team officials Sunday at the annual league meetings in Arizona, Mark Maske of The Washington Post reports.
Maske adds “nothing was resolved” between the two sides during the meeting.
Grossman, 32, started 13 games for the Redskins in 2011 before he was relegated to third-string duty behind rookies Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins last season.
Griffin’s knee injury and subsequent surgery give added significance to re-signing the 10-year veteran, who would give Washington a semblance of stability at the position should the franchise quarterback not be ready in time for the season opener.
Davis, meanwhile, is reportedly drawing interest from the Cleveland Browns while coming off an a 2012 campaign cut short by a ruptured Achilles’ tendon.
The tight end is also spending his offseason in a District of Columbia courtroom, where he is defending himself in a bizarre and widely publicized trial stemming from a January 2011 exchange inside a nightclub.
An alleged ‘madam/pimpette’ accuses Davis of showering her with juice and throwing the empty pitcher at her. She is seeking more than $350,000 in damages.
