Whoops! Skins Second-Round Pick TE Davis Oversleeps and Misses Camp


You can bet that Redskins second-round draft pick Fred Davis will remember his first mini-camp.  That’s because he wasn’t at it.  Davis, a tight end from USC, missed the mini-camp because team officials said he overslept.  Davis was supposed to report to a local hotel, and when he failed to show, the team sent security looking for him.  “Everybody was scouring,” coach Jim Zorn said after the practice. “Nobody heard from him, so there was one of two scenarios: either there was some real trouble and we needed to find him, or he screwed up. I haven’t even got to talk to him yet. I know he has been found. I believe it is more in the ‘I screwed up’ category.”

Davis did show up finally, and once he did, he had to have a little sit down with Zorn.  Not exactly a good way to make an early good impression on your coach or new team for that matter.  “He just had a setback,” Zorn said. “Hopefully everybody will learn from the lesson that he is having to learn right now about what it is going to take to get to a place on time, to be responsible.”
