Redskins use franchise tag on TE Davis

The Redskins have franchised TE Fred Davis, a league source said Friday.

The team later confirmed the move in a statement.

Team sources said last month that there was a good chance that Davis would get franchised, with safety LaRon Landry being the team’s other main option to get the tag.

If Davis and the Redskins are unable to agree to a long-term deal, Davis will earn about $5.4 million during the 2012 season.
