Austin Davis: Cut by Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis was released by the Titans on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Released by Seattle at the end of the 2018 preseason, Davis had two stints on the Titans' roster when Marcus Mariota (elbow) was dealing with injuries. The 29-year-old quarterback hasn't thrown a pass in a regular-season game since 2015.

Titans' Austin Davis: Signs with Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis signed a contract with the Titans on Monday, Terry McCormick of reports.

Davis' signing comes on the heels of Marcus Mariota's (elbow) injury. If Mariota is held out of the team's Week 17 matchup with the Colts, Davis will operate as the backup to Blaine Gabbert. Davis won't figure to see the field unless the team takes further losses at quarterback.

Austin Davis: Released by Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Titans released Davis on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

With Marcus Mariota now reasonably healthy after contending with an elbow injury and Blaine Gabbert having cleared the concussion protocol, there was no longer a need for the Titans to keep Davis around as a third-string quarterback. The 29-year-old didn't earn any snaps during his stint with Tennessee, which lasted just two weeks.

Titans' Austin Davis: In line to back up Marcus Mariota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis will be the backup option for starter Marcus Mariota (elbow) Sunday against the Eagles, as Blaine Gabbert (concussion) is listed as inactive for the contest.

Davis signed with Tennessee just five days earlier, but he'll get thrown into the mix as an emergency quarterback option Sunday. While Marcus Mariota has been deemed healthy enough to start despite an elbow injury, he's been unable to shed his injury-prone label to date, and any type of setback would likely lead to Davis seeing game action.

Titans' Austin Davis: Joins Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis agreed to a contract Tuesday with the Titans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Davis' addition gives the Titans some much-needed depth at quarterback with Marcus Mariota still limited by an elbow injury and Blaine Gabbert embedded in the NFL's concussion protocol. Since Mariota was able to finish the Titans' Week 3 upset win over the Jaguars, he seems on track to be available Sunday against the Eagles, but he hasn't started either of the past two weeks due to the complications his elbow presents when he throws. With that in mind, Davis could very well end up seeing snaps versus Philadelphia in the event Gabbert isn't available. Davis spent the 2017 season in Seattle as the backup to Russell Wilson, but only logged five offensive snaps throughout the campaign.

Austin Davis: Waived with injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks waived Davis (undisclosed) from injured reserve Saturday, Ben Arthur of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.

Davis is a career backup, but he was pushed from his position behind Russell Wilson after a preseason where he completed 21 of 30 throws for 250 yards, one touchdown and one interception. The Seahawks subsequently traded a sixth-round pick to the Packers for Brett Hundley, who will be Wilson's insurance this season.

Seahawks' Austin Davis: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks placed Davis (undisclosed) on injured reserve Saturday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic Seattle reports.

Davis was expected to get cut after the Seahawks traded for Brett Hundley, but the Seahawks found a place for him on injured reserve. He won't be able to play in the 2018 campaign unless he reaches an injury settlement.

Seahawks' Austin Davis: Likely to be cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is likely to be released after the Seahawks traded for Brett Hundley on Wednesday, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Apparently displeased with the backup quarterback competition between Davis and rookie seventh-round pick Alex McGough, the Seahawks traded for Hundley one day before its final preseason game. With McGough a better bet to land on the practice squad, Davis may find himself out of a job by Week 1. There is some chance Seattle could keep three quarterbacks on the roster early in the season while Hundley gets up to speed with the playbook.

Seahawks' Austin Davis: Makes little impact Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis completed two of three passes for minus-1 yard during Friday's 21-20 preseason loss to the Vikings.

QB Alex McGough, who is competing with Davis for the backup job, produced a dud as well, completing five of 14 passes for 140 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Neither signal caller has looked good through the first three preseason games, and if that carries into the final exhibition game the Seahawks may ponder free-agent options.

Seahawks' Austin Davis: Vying for primary backup spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis will compete with Alex McGough for the Seahawks' backup quarterback job during training camp, Brady Henderson of reports.

Davis has experience and incumbent status on his side in the job battle, likely conferring him the early advantage heading into training camp. Despite his undersized stature, Russell Wilson has yet to miss a game in his NFL career, which may embolden the Seahawks to keep only two quarterbacks on the roster when the season begins. Davis ended up appearing in three contests in 2017, but played just five offensive snaps.

Austin Davis: Re-signing with Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is re-signing with the Seahawks for the veteran's minimum, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Davis outplayed Trevone Boykin last preseason and spent all of the regular season serving as Russell Wilson's top backup. While the Seahawks are expected to look into alternatives, including Colin Kaepernick, it isn't out of the question that Davis retains the role for another year. The team recently signed Stephen Morris, who likely would be the underdog in a training camp battle against Davis.

Seahawks' Austin Davis: Throws game-winning touchdown Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis completed 10 of 16 passes for 123 yards and touchdown Thursday, leading the Seahawks on a 75-yard game-winning scoring drive to beat the Raiders in the preseason finale.

Trevone Boykin entered camp as the favorite for the backup quarterback job behind Russell Wilson, but Davis outplayed him in the last three preseason games, including Thursday, when Boykin threw two interceptions. Davis was 5-for-5 for 67 yards on the winning drive, completing the 16-yard touchdown strike with 1:10 remaining. Boykin is a dual-threat quarterback who at times can dazzle, but Davis is a steadier veteran who may be less susceptible to turnovers. The team's decision on a backup could come down to whether it values upside over stability, or vice versa.

Seahawks' Austin Davis: Competing for No. 2 spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis will compete with Trevone Boykin for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Head coach Pete Carroll said of the competition, "It's been a good mix so far. So we brought him [Davis] in and we'll make these evaluations as we get back but I think Austin showed very well for himself."

Davis plays with a style different from Russell Wilson and Boykin, as he lacks a dual-threat quality in his game, but that doesn't mean he'll assume the No. 3 spot on depth chart. The 28-year-old boasts more starting experience than his counterpart, and given Boykin's legal troubles, Davis may be a safer option to back up Wilson this fall. Look for more updates on the competition to come throughout training camp.

Seahawks' Austin Davis: Signs with Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis signed a contract Monday with the Seahawks, John Boyle of 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.

Austin Davis: Waived by Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Broncos' Austin Davis: Signs with Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Austin Davis: Waived by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis was cut by the Browns, the team announced Monday.

After a concussion stunted his involvement during the preseason, Davis found himself on the bottom of the Browns' quarterback depth chart. He's 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.

Browns' Austin Davis: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Browns' Austin Davis: Taken to locker room for concussion evaluation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis was taken to the locker room during Friday's preseason matchup with the Packers after suffering a possible concussion, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.

The severity of Davis' concussion is unclear. As the fourth quarterback listed on Cleveland's depth chart, any injury could threaten Davis' roster spot.

Browns' Austin Davis: Struggles against Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis threw two interceptions without a touchdown while completing 24-of-46 passes for 240 yards against the Steelers on Sunday. He also rushed for 22 yards on three carries, and lost a fumble.

Davis failed to throw a touchdown while getting picked off three times in his two starts for Cleveland this season. The former Rams quarterback struggled mightily in place of Johnny Manziel (concussion) this week, and his ineptitude allowed Pittsburgh to sneak into the playoffs.
