Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis admits to nodding off during team meetings and to the possibility of going somewhere else should he not get enough playing time.

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis admits to nodding off during team meetings. 

This was what Joseph White of the Associated Press wrote on Oct. 30, citing "persistent questions about Davis' work ethic and his ability to focus during meetings, starting from the day he overslept and missed a minicamp practice as a rookie."

Davis spoke about the issue.

"I've never slept through a whole meeting, but I've nodded off. Everyone nods off. It's dark in there. You're watching film, you nod off, you wake up, you get something to drink, go back. I've done that. Everybody's done that." 

Davis, who has been inactive the past two weeks, will be a free agent after the 2013 NFL season. The Oct. 29 trade deadline has since passed, and he is still in a Redskins uniform.

He made it clear that if he won't get any sufficient playing time, he's better off playing somewhere else, per the Washington Times' Brian McNally.

"I just want to play. I like it here. I was drafted here. But at the end of the day I just want to play. If I can't play here then I did want to play somewhere else.

"I thought (a trade) might (be a) possibility. But when I really thought about it, because next year I'll be a free agent anyway and for someone to give up a draft pick for a guy to be a free agent next year, I don't think that would make sense."

In spite of his situation, Davis says he'll keep practicing hard so head coach Mike Shanahan can give him a good reference should he decide to test the market after 2013.  

"This is just a situation I can laugh at later in life, if I'm here or somewhere else. Just knowing I have to keep working, because at the end of the day, it's a fraternity between coaches, and if I leave, they need to tell the other coaches I acted a certain way and kept working and didn't shut down." 

The 27-year-old Davis was selected 48th overall by Washington in the 2008 NFL Draft. In his six-year career, he has 158 receptions for 1,998 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns.
