LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The New York Jets have joined the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills in the race to sign Fred Davis as the Cleveland Browns appear to be falling out of the race.

The tight end, who was given a lucrative one-year franchise tag by Washington last season, is testing the free agency waters for the first time in his career.

He’s hoping to re-sign with the Redskins, but is also making it clear he’s willing to move on.

“If anything, they’re cheating of me if they don’t bring me back,” Davis said when asked if he felt guilty about speaking with other teams on the Pro Football Central podcast this week.

As for the Jets, Davis says he plans to meet with the Rex Ryan-led team in a couple of days.

Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger confirms the team has expressed “some level of interest” in him.

Davis, who recently met with the Bills, says he has a “good feeling” about the Bills, comparing their meeting to a nice steak dinner.

The Browns, once thought to be among the frontrunners to sign the USC product, appear to be losing interest in the Redskins UFA after signing Kellen Davis.

“I don’t know for sure how deep that conversation is getting [with the Browns],” said Davis. “I haven’t really talked with them in a while.”

And this could land Cleveland on Davis’ naughty list. He recently vowed revenge on teams the pass on signing him, including the Redskins.

“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,” he told NFL AM. “And I’ll bet you next year’s gonna be a good year for me. “

Davis says he’s been in contact with the Redskins throughout the free agency process.
