The NFL’s trade deadline passed Tuesday afternoon without the Washington Redskins dealing tight end Fred Davis.

A person familiar with the team’s planning said the Redskins remained interested in trading Davis as the deadline neared. But no deal was worked out.

Davis has only three catches this season and has been on the inactive list for each of the Redskins’ last two games. Rookie Jordan Reed has emerged as the team’s most productive pass-catching tight end.
