Tight end Vernon Davis' production has dropped off in recent years, but the veteran has decided to continue his career with the Washington Redskins.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that the Washington, D.C., native agreed to a deal with the team on Thursday.
On March 22, Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported that the Redskins offered Davis a contract because they want to pair him with Jordan Reed:

ESPN.com's John Keim first reported on March 11 that the Redskins hosted Davis and noted that his blocking ability and experience were both lures for Washington.
With his arrival in Washington, there won't be a ton of pressure, as he'll be behind the productive Reed on the depth chart.
Davis would likely have to compete with Niles Paul for playing time, however, assuming the tight end is able to return from an ankle injury.
Even if Davis is only a role player at this juncture of his career, having someone with his level of experience and track record of success figures to be beneficial to a Redskins team that is looking to repeat as NFC East champions.
The 32-year-old veteran split 2015 between the Niners and the Broncos, and he put up modest numbers with 38 receptions for 395 yards and no touchdowns.
While he provided Denver with some depth alongside Owen Daniels and Virgil Green, he never became a vital part of the offense, which is something Broncos general manager John Elway addressed at the conclusion of the season, per Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio:
I think that the coaches kind of go in different directions at different times and how things mix, and we could never really get up to speed with him. He did come in late in the year, so whether he didn't feel comfortable with what we were doing and what we could get him in situations, we tried to get him in situations to be successful. But then again, it comes down to making those calls during a game and where he had a chance. So that's another area we'll look at, tight end’s a position we have to look at, still very fluid that we feel like we have to get better there.
Davis didn't have a catch for the Broncos during the playoffs, but he was part of the Super Bowl-winning roster, which certainly adds an intriguing element to his resume.
The Maryland alum is just a couple of seasons removed from a 2013 campaign that saw him rack up 850 yards and 13 touchdowns en route to his second Pro Bowl selection.
He can be a dangerous weapon under the right circumstances, although it is fair to wonder if his best days are fully behind him.
