Redskins Position Battles: Crowded at Tight End

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – As the Redskins head into year four of the Mike Shanahan regime, it’s easier to notice depth throughout the roster on both sides of the ball, perhaps even too much depth.

Washington recently re-signed veteran tight end Fred Davis to a one-year extension, but with Niles Paul entering his second season tight end convert, and new draft pick Jordan Reed under contract, the Redskins are looking at a log jam at the position.

“It’s a matter of how do you work in the other tight ends,” the Washington Post’s John Keim pointed out to 106.7 The Fan’s Holden and Danny. “Will Jordan Reed have a role? I’m not confident that right away that he would.”

Certainly having too many weapons on offense is a problem any team would welcome with open arms, and a tremendous issue for a 2nd year quarterback like RGIII to be facing, but their roles will eventually need to be defined.

Keim points out other uncertainties at the position include how well Davis has recovered from his torn Achilles, which prematurely ended his 2012 campaign.

“We don’t know how recovered Fred is from that Achilles,” Keim said. “What if he’s only ninety percent?”

Again, these are all good problems to have, but even good problems are still problems until they’re resolved.
