Your Friday morning open thread:

When the Redskins drafted Jordan Reed last year, the previous coaching staff spoke giddily about the prospects of having four capable tight ends. They were particularly intrigued with having two playmakers—Reed and Fred Davis—at their disposal.

Well, it didn't exactly work out.

Reed had a strong rookie season statistically but missed seven games with injuries. Davis, meantime, was deactivated five times and finished with only seven catches. And now, it appears Davis’ career in Washington—and maybe in the NFL—could be over after Wednesday's indefinite suspension by the league and Thursday's arrest on DUI charges.

So here’s today’s question: are the Redskins okay going forward with Reed, Logan Paulsen and Niles Paul as their tight ends? Or do they need to bring in another pass-catching threat to replace Davis (and step in for Reed if he gets hurt again)?
