Redskins tight end Vernon Davis spotted at Sundance Film Festival

The Redskins tight end has been in a variety of movies since entering the NFL in 2006.

WASHINGTON — While many athletes are in Miami for Super Bowl week, Washington Redskins tight end Vernon Davis is catching flicks at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

Vernon was spotted at the festival in Park City, Utah by former WUSA9 reporter Surae Chinn, who posted the picture to her Instagram page on Tuesday. 

"Somehow, even in Utah, D.C. always comes out to play," Chinn said in her post about meeting Davis. 

The 35-year-old two-time Pro-Bowl participant and Super Bowl champion may be known more for his catches on the gridiron, but Davis has used his time out of football to try his hand at acting. 

According to IMDb, Davis has been in seven movies, including "Hell on the Border," where he plays a character named Columbus. The film premiered in December 2019.

Davis has also played himself in two movies, "Baywatch" and "Inside Amy Schumer," and made an appearance in TV show "The League." 

In 2018, Davis also helped release a biographical film as an executive producer called "Those Who Move Us."

While Davis has his hands in a variety of projects, he still handles a football pretty well, even though his production on the field was down in his fourth season with the Redskins, due to injuries. 

The 13-year NFL veteran only played four games during the 2019 season and was placed on Washington's injured reserve list on Nov. 22 because of a concussion.

During his four seasons in Washington, Davis has scored eight touchdowns and caught 122 passes. 

The 2020 Sundance Film Festival will run through Feb. 2. It is not known if Davis will head to Miami to watch the Super Bowl.
