Washington released Davis on Monday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. Davis spent time on Washington's practice squad last season, but he didn't ultimately suit up for a game with the team. Back in 2019, Davis appeared in contests for the Packers, Dolphins and Raiders.
Washington signed Davis to a reserve/future contract Monday. After spending the last few months on Washington's practice squad, Davis has earned a spot on the roster. The 27-year-old has garnered extensive experience as a returner over his four NFL seasons with the Packers, Dolphins and Raiders, amassing 593 yards on punt returns and another 1,297 while running back kickoffs.
Davis signed to Washington's practice squad Wednesday. The 27-year-old spent training camp in Chicago and had a workout in Houston before finally latching on with Washington. Davis appeared in 14 games between the Packers, Raiders and Dolphins last season, and his primary duties figure to be in the return game if he makes his way to Washington's active roster.
The Texans brought Davis in for a workout, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Davis was a 2016 fifth-round draft pick of the Packers and has played for Green Bay, Miami and Oakland. He was most recently with the Bears in training camp. Davis has extensive experience as a returner, which is likely why the Texans brought him in. Houston's primary returner, DeAndre Carter, had a costly fumble during last week's loss to the Vikings.
Davis did not record an offensive snap during Week 17's win over the Patriots. Davis wasn't targeted during his three-game stint with Miami in 2019, though he did contribute as a kick and punt returner. The return specialist is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
