Davis, who turns 27 next month, is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He is currently playing on a one-year, franchise-player tender worth approximately $5.4 million.

After being suspended the final four games last year for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, this was something of a season of redemption for Davis, who suddenly saw his evolution into an all-around tight end stunted by this injury.

“I had a lot of stuff I wanted to do this year. I was doing it,” Davis said. “These situations happen in football. Any play something like this can happen. … I want to be out there and prove every down. If I could play I would. But some situations you’ve got to deal with.”
