Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 17 vs NYG (3 / 2 / 49 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis made a small impact in this game as he managed two catches. The bigger of the two came on a thirty-one yard reception down the sideline. It helped to spark the offense moving into scoring position but they were unable to capitalize. When Jordan Reed is healthy it is difficult for Vernon to get integrated into the offense so two catches is a plus for him.
2016 Week 16 vs CHI (2 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
With Jordan Reed out of the lineup, Davis filled in as the starter. It was a low-key performance, however, with just two targets and none before the mid-third quarter. Davis converted a third down out route on his lone reception. Davis' other target offered a touchdown opportunity, wide open in the end zone, but a pressured Kirk Cousins could not deliver an accurate pass on fourth down. Davis has rebounded with a quality season as he is set to enter free agency this coming offseason as his reception and yardage totals are his high-water marks dating back to 2013.
2016 Week 15 vs CAR (9 / 4 / 23 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis didn't make much of an impact in this game even with the Jordan Reed ejection. He had four receptions but could have actually made a bigger contribution but he dropped a seemingly easy touchdown on a crossing route. He has been inconsistent with his production but Washington has no problem using him in the passing game.
2016 Week 14 vs PHI (2 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis wasn't involved at all as he only had one reception for one yard.
2016 Week 13 vs ARI (6 / 5 / 47 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis had his big opportunity to fill In for Jordan Reed but had a hard time getting going against the Cardinals defense. He had five catches on the day with three of them coming towards the end of the fourth quarter. His longest catch went for eighteen yards but Arizona kept his production to a minimum. Vernon almost had a touchdown reception in the second quarter but he was tackled on the three yard line. Arizona is tough against tight ends so maybe next week he can find more success.
2016 Week 12 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 68 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis was active this week in the passing game as he tallied five receptions. He filled in for a while when Jordan Reed had to leave the game due to an injury. Kirk found Vernon for a twenty-six yard gain which was his longest of the day. Vernon showed on the catch and run that he still has the speed to be a dangerous when called upon. It was impressive to see him get open across the middle of the field and have the ability to out run defenders once he had the ball. His role in Washington's pass attack is inconsistent but he has shown that he can be relied on if needed.
2016 Week 11 vs GB (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis has been steadily involved in the passing game but with DeSean Jackson back he may disappear again. Vernon did not record a catch in this game and was only targeted once.
2016 Week 10 vs MIN (3 / 3 / 66 / 1 rec)
Vernon Davis had three catches to go along with a touchdown in the first quarter. His ability to stretch defenses vertically up the seams is becoming even more dangerous in this offense. His opportunities should start trending up going forward.
2016 Week 8 vs CIN (5 / 5 / 93 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis seems to be getting more looks in the Washington offense as a legitimate threat. He had five catches on the day for almost one hundred yards. He had a forty-four yard reception that showed he is still explosive with the capability to stretch defenses. Being that Washington's passing game is primarily based on short throws he can be dangerous any given week. He was also another guy that benefitted from DeSean being banged up in this game.
2016 Week 7 vs DET (6 / 6 / 79 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis was more involved in this game as he recorded six catches. He only had two receptions last game and it was clear they needed to find a way to get him more active against Detroit. His speed and athleticism was on full display as Detroit's linebackers struggled to keep up with him. He had the 2nd highest yardage total for this game for Washington but he didn't find the end zone. He was targeted once in the red zone but Kirk could not connect. If Jordan remains out Vernon has proved he is a viable option in the passing game for Washington.
2016 Week 6 vs PHI (4 / 2 / 50 / 1 rec)
Vernon Davis showed that he can be a capable fill in for Jordan Reed whenever necessary. He only had two receptions but they went for fifty yards which shows he can still be explosive. He scored a touchdown on the day as he ran a terrific seam route in the red zone and found himself almost wide open for the catch. If Jordan Reed misses additional time Washington will find a way to get him more involved because his size and speed can create mismatches.
2016 Week 2 vs DAL (5 / 5 / 51 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis seems to be slowly being integrated into the Washington offense. He quietly had five catches and even had one of them go for thirty-two yards. His athleticism was on full display over the middle of the field as Kirk was able to find him with ideal matchups. It will be interesting to see how much more of a priority he becomes in the offense moving forward.
Latest NewsRedskins | Washington would like Vernon Davis back (Sat Jan 21, 12:42 PM) - Washington Redskins impending free-agent TE Vernon Davis is a player the Redskins would like to re-sign this offseason. Our View: Davis filled in nicely for an injured Jordan Reed this year, compiling 44 catches for 583 yards and two touchdowns. He was signed to a one-year "prove it" deal in 2016, so Davis may want a larger payday in 2017. Davis was a good fit with Washington, and we have a feeling they'll be able to keep him around at a good price.
link to story Redskins | Vernon Davis will be FA (Sun Jan 15, 04:50 PM) - Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST. Our View: We'll see if Davis can get one final payday. He signed a one-year deal with Washington after doing next to nothing (except winning a Super Bowl) with the Broncos in 2015. Davis was great depth behind injury prone starter Jordan Reed, and Davis performed well as a reserve or as a starter this year. If the price is right, Washington would be wise to bring him back.
