Fred Davis can see how the Redskins name “could be kind of offensive”

Earlier this season,  Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III told the media that they’re not allowed to talk about the controversy that surrounds the name of their team.

On Tuesday, Redskins tight end Fred Davis was a guest on Lavar and Dukes today on 106.7 The Fan in D.C. and was asked if thinks the Redskins’ name is offensive.

“[A]t the end of the day, it doesn’t matter,” Davis said.  “I mean, you give us a name or not, we’re going to go out there with some new cool jerseys and play football.

“So at the end of the day, it depends.  Whatever they do, I can’t really have a say in it, and I could see how it could be kind of offensive.  But you know, at the end of the day, I don’t have control of that.  All I do is put a jersey on and play football.  If they call it Washington Redskins, Fredskins, I mean whatever you want to call it.”

I’m sure Davis will claim that his comments were taken out of context tomorrow when this story is plastered all over the internet.

    Oh come one now Fred Davis: ANYBODY cand find something offensive about anything–nitpickers my folks called them.
    Please defend the NFL and the owners. We don’t need the public believing that drivel that Redskins is ‘racist’ — did YOU get to read Dan Snyder’s letter to all season ticket holders?
    IF NOT, Google it and read it.
    It’s good.
    The trouble-makers and ‘nitpickers’ be damned.
