Free agent tight end Fred Davis’ trip to the New York Jets was cancelled, leaving his choices down to Buffalo and Washington, according to an NFL source.

The source said that Buffalo’s offer was better than Washington’s, but not substantially so, which could make it difficult for Davis to leave. Also, he’d likely sign a one-year deal with Washington, prove that he’s healthy and hit the market next season.

Davis had visited with Buffalo on Thursday. The NFL source said Buffalo could be offering a two-year deal, but their package is less than $1 million more than Washington’s one-year offer.

Meanwhile, no formal offer has been made to corner Antoine Winfield, who visited Washington on Wednesday. However, the Redskins put on a full-court press at dinner with owner Dan Snyder, general manager Bruce Allen, coach Mike Shanahan, quarterback Robert Griffin III and the defensive staff attending the meal, according to a source. The source said Winfield liked his visit, particularly when the discussion turned to football. Winfield also is friends with linebacker London Fletcher, with whom he played in Buffalo.

Winfield also is weighing offers to visit other teams. Minnesota remains interested in him.
