Davis signed his one-year free-agent tender Monday, Nick Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. Davis started for Denver last season after former starter Danny Trevathan left via free agency, and Davis will expect to start once again in 2017. He had 97 tackles and three passes defensed in 16 games in 2016.
Davis was tendered to a one-year contract by the Broncos on Tuesday, Andrew Mason of the team's official site reports. Davis, an undrafted free agent, became a starting linebacker last season, recording 97 tackles, three pass deflections and 0.5 sacks in 16 games. His new contract is worth $2.75 million, a significant raise from what he made last season. "Todd Davis is a physical player; he's a physical, downfield, middle linebacker," head coach Vance Joseph said at the combine last week. "He fits the mold of what we want."
Davis forced a fumble while posting 13 tackles in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. After recording five or fewer tackles in eight of his first 13 games of the season, Davis has now notched 13 tackles in two straight games to go along with his first forced fumble of 2016. His recent production should alert fantasy owners that he could be a player to target in 2017 IDP drafts.
Davis (oblique) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Davis missed some practice time this week but was able to increase his participation Friday and figures to start at inside linebacker along with Zaire Anderson or Corey Nelson.
Davis (oblique) is questionable for Sunday's contest against New England. Davis was held out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday due to his strained oblique but he managed to participate in a limited fashion on Friday. If he's held out look for Zaire Anderson to see some extra time.
