Davis re-signed with the Browns on Tuesday. Davis joined the Browns from Baltimore via waivers following final roster cuts last season, and notched one tackle on 31 defensive snaps over five games. The 2015 third-rounder will work to earn a rotational role behind Larry Ogunjobi and Trevon Coley in 2019.
Davis was claimed off waivers by the Browns, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Davis never panned out in Baltimore after the Ravens made him a third-round pick in 2015. The Iowa product will now look to redeem himself in a new locale.
Davis logged 20 defensive snaps during Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins. Davis didn't get himself in the stat sheet, but he at least seems to be moving around well after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery. The 2015 third-rounder seems like a safe bet to make the roster in Baltimore and is entering the 2018 campaign with a rotational role Brandon Williams and Brent Urban.
Davis underwent offseason shoulder surgery and hopes to be ready for the start of training camp, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports. The former Iowa Hawkeye had his most productive professional season in 2017, but he did battle a shoulder issue down the stretch that ultimately required surgery once the campaign ended. Davis suffered the injury in Week 15 against Cleveland and though he was active for the final two games, his snap counts were scaled back dramatically. He finished the year with 19 total tackles and 0.5 sacks over 15 games. Davis enters a pivotal year in his young career as the 2015 third-rounder has yet to truly live up to his draft position, so if the shoulder rehab lingers into training camp, it could put him behind the curve.
Davis (shoulder) is listed as active for Saturday's contest against the Colts. Davis injured his shoulder in last week's win over the Browns, but has apparently recovered enough to suit up Saturday. Should he ultimately suffer some type of setback, look for Willie Henry to fill in at defensive tackle.
