UPDATE: NFL suspends Redskins TE Fred Davis indefinitely

Fred Davis is about as far off the radar as a pending free agent can possibly be. Following a season in which he hardly played and didn't play well when he got his chance, the Redskins announced Wednesday that Davis has been suspended indefinitely by the league. The suspension is for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. The tight end was suspended four games in 2011 for a violation of the policy.

-----------------------------------

Update: Davis released a statement this afternoon:

"I would like to clarify the circumstances that resulted in my current suspension. In the past, I made the mistake of knowingly ingesting a banned substance. For over two years, I've worked very hard to eliminate marijuana from my life, and I have not had a positive test for it since 2011. Unfortunately, a couple of months ago I took a supplement that contained a banned substance. I now know that supplements are not regulated by the FDA and may contain banned substances. The NFL Policy is strict, and not knowing that a supplement might contain a banned substance doesn't excuse a violation of the policy. I've worked closely with the NFLPA and NFL to resolve this violation, and I will be permitted to apply for reinstatement in the fall. I look forward to staying in football shape, remaining in compliance with the NFL policy, and having a chance to get back on the field to contribute to a team's success next season."

Fantasy Analysis:

Any team have interest in signing an indefinitely suspended player who caught 31 passes the past two seasons combined and seemed rather disinterested when on the field -- and off of it -- in 2013?
No? Shocking.
