LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Impending free agent tight end Fred Davis is reportedly facing his second marijuana-related suspension in three years.

Davis, who has played exclusively for the Washington Redskins since entering the league in 2008, could be suspended for six games, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Previously, Davis was suspended for the final four games of the 2011 season after he and teammate Trent Williams tested positive for marijuana.

After signing a one-year franchise tender worth $5.446 million in 2012, Davis suffered a torn Achilles tendon against the New York Giants in Week 7 and missed the remainder of the season.

The following March, Davis signed another one-year deal to remain in Washington. However, he appeared in just 10 games as rookie Jordan Reed surpassed him on the depth chart. Davis was inactive for a six-game stretch in the middle of the season and only returned to the field after a concussion ended Reed’s rookie campaign in late November. Davis finished the season with just seven catches for 70 yards, including a touchdown.

If suspended, Davis’ value on the free agent market will essentially bottom out.
