Demoted Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis, inactive the past two games, gave new meaning to the term "sleeper player'' when he admitted Wednesday he nods off during team meetings.
"I've never slept through a whole meeting, but I've nodded off,'' Davis said after practice. "I mean everyone nods off. It's dark in there. You nod off. You wake up — go get something to drink and go back.
"I've done that.''
Davis was asked if he had been hoping the team would trade him before the deadline Tuesday. "Definitely," he said. "If I was on another team, you'd see what I can do."
We're guessing, but if you're looking for a trade, telling a national newspaper that you fall asleep in team meetings is not the best way to go about boosting your stock.
