Redskins TE Davis an ageless wonder

(TSX / STATS) -- HERNDON, Va. -- Two years ago, at age 31, veteran tight end Vernon Davis was a bit player on a Super Bowl champion. A once brilliant career was fading.

Davis left the champion Denver Broncos via free agency and had a resurgence with his hometown Washington Redskins last season. That's continued in 2017 at age 33, helping make up for a limited Jordan Reed (chest, toe injuries) at tight end.

The last two games alone Davis has caught passes for 69 and 51 yards. His presence opposite Reed has kept a top-five offense humming despite the loss of its top two wide receivers in the offseason (DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon), injuries (Reed, Jamison Crowder) and a suspect running game (106 yards per game, 21st overall).
