Fred Davis says he will meet with Jets

After meeting with the Buffalo Bills over the weekend, Fred Davis will make another AFC East stop, visiting the New York Jets.

The free-agent tight end told Pro Football Central that that’s his plan, saying he’d meet with the Jets “in a couple of days.” The Washington Redskins, who drafted Davis out of USC in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft, still are interested in Davis.

The Jets lost Dustin Keller to the Miami Dolphins and may like Davis’s vow to make teams regret not signing him, although the downside is that he’s coming off an Achilles’ injury.

“I definitely feel like whatever team signed any tight ends right now, I’m gonna make them regret anything that they do — and the Redskins, too, as well – because I know I’m gonna go out here and I’m gonna do what I have to do,” he told NFL AM, “and I’ll bet you next year’s gonna be a good year for me.“
