Fred Davis: Clown prince of the U.S. justice system


Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis is like the Johnnie Cochran of the NFL ... only without any formal legal training, defense experience, or even a base knowledge of our country's legal process.

Davis admitted that the whole situation was "hilarious" and was asked if he planned to go to law school after his playing career is through.

"Freddy, the attorney at law," he laughed.

We volunteer to handle his advertising: "Hire Freddy, attorney at law: We'll prove it's all made up and flagellant!"
