Davis signed a contract Monday with the Seahawks, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports. In a corresponding move, the team released No. 3 quarterback Jake Heaps to open a spot on the camp roster for Davis. Although the Seahawks recently brought in Colin Kaepernick for a meeting, it appears that Davis will be the veteran quarterback that competes with Trevone Boykin in camp for the backup gig behind starter Russell Wilson. Davis has had stints with the Rams, Browns and Broncos over the past three seasons, but has failed to maintain a roster spot with any of those clubs on a long-term basis.
Davis was waived by the Broncos on Monday, Troy Renck of Denver7 News reports. Davis, the Broncos' third string quarterback, didn't play a single snap in his 15 weeks on the roster and wasn't likely to unless injuries to Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch forced him into action. His absence won't impact the offense much at all.
The Broncos signed Davis on Saturday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Recently cut by the Browns, Davis will slot into Mark Sanchez's spot on the quarterback depth chart behind starter Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch.
Davis was waived by the Browns, the team announced on Monday. After a concussion stunted his involvement during the preseason, Davis found himself on the bottom of the Browns' quarterback depth chart. Davis has shown flashes of being a solid NFL quarterback, but potential injury concerns may leave him off a team's roster before the start of the season.
Davis has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol, ESPN's Tony Grossi reports. Davis exited the Browns' exhibition opener with an injury to his head and subsequently missed the entire second week of the preseason. Fortunately, he should be a full-participant in practice moving forward, but appears to have slipped to the bottom of Cleveland's QB depth chart and could be on the wrong side of the roster bubble as teams trim their rosters down to 75 as the regular season nears.
