Former Washington Redskins second-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, Fred Davis will be part of the XFL Summer Showcase in Los Angeles Friday. The Tight End played six seasons with the Redskins. He joins former Denver Bronco Rahim Moore and Chicago Bear Will Sutton on June 21st at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Davis played with the Redskins from 2008 to 2013 and was named the Washington Redskins’ Offensive Player of the Year in 2011. He was also signed by the New England Patriots in 2015 but cut a month later.

He won the John Mackey Award as the nations top Tight End in 2007 and was named a Second-team AP All-American in the same year while playing for USC(NCAA).
