Bengals' Akeem Davis-Gaither: Workload growing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis-Gaither recorded four tackles (three solo) and a pass breakup in Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Ravens.

Davis-Gaither played the most of any Bengals linebacker, logging 50 of 63 defensive snaps (79 percent). The rookie fourth-rounder out of Appalachian State was deployed in a three-down capacity, and he figures to maintain this role moving forward considering the lack of options the Bengals have at linebacker.

Bengals' Akeem Davis-Gaither: Limited action in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis-Gaither played 20 defensive snaps in his Bengals debut, recording three tackles. He played most of his snaps on third down, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Davis-Gaither and Logan Wilson were frequently tasked with defending Hunter Henry and Austin Ekeler, with varying results - Henry was the Chargers' leading receiver, whereas Ekeler had just one catch for three yards. The Bengals are rotating five linebackers for three spots currently.

Bengals' Akeem Davis-Gaither: Inks rookie deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis-Gaither (foot) signed his four-year rookie contract with the Bengals on Tuesday.

Davis-Gaither underwent foot surgery in February and wasn't able to participate in drills at the combine, but he looks ready to take the field with teammates when training camp begins. The rookie fourth-round pick showcased impressive athleticism on film across five years at Appalachian State, including back-to-back seasons with over 100 tackles.

Bengals' Akeem Davis-Gaither: First pick of Day 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals selected Davis-Gaither (foot) in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 107th overall.

The Bengals continued to add athleticism to their linebacker room with the addition of Davis-Gaither out of Appalachian State after nabbing Logan Wilson out of Wyoming on Day 2. Davis-Gaither was unable to test at the combine due to a foot injury that required surgery, but he showed excellent closing speed on film. He had back-to-back seasons of over 100 tackles for the Mountaineers and was named Sun Belt defensive player of the year as a senior. Davis-Gaither should compete for snaps as an outside linebacker in Cincinnati right away if healthy.
