Free-agent tight end Fred Davis dined Saturday night in Washington with Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone, general manager Buddy Nix and other team officials, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Davis is scheduled to visit the Bills again Wednesday, a league source told Schefter. The New York Jets and Washington Redskins also are interested in Davis, the source said.

Davis was the Redskins' leading receiver with 24 catches for 325 yards before tearing his Achilles tendon against the Giants last October.

He told the NFL Network on Friday that he is recovering well from the injury and that he is even "a little bit ahead of schedule."

Davis also said his preference was to remain with the Redskins but that he was open to signing with another team.

"I definitely would [like to stay], but at the end of the day, I'll play wherever," Davis told the NFL Network. "It doesn't matter to me. It's about football to me. I would like to stay here, but if I can't, I'm fine with that as well."

In 2011, he was having a career year with 59 catches for 796 yards before being suspended for the final four games after failing multiple drug tests.

The 27-year-old tight end has 155 catches, 1,973 yards and 12 touchdowns in 62 career games.
