The Bears have added free-agent RB Mike Davis. The former Seahawk was sneaky-good last year, averaging 4.6 yards per carry on 112 attempts and posting a 34-214-1 receiving line. Pro Football Focus graded him 25th among 62 RBs -- notably 12 spots ahead of new teammate Jordan Howard. Howard has been the subject of trade whispers, although we're not sure Davis' addition is a precursor. We'll see.
Update: Davis' deal is for 2 years and $6 million with a max value of $7 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that Mike Davis has earned a spot in the team's RB "rotation." That'd be alongside Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. Unless Carson misses more time with his hip injury, this will be a backfield to avoid in Week 5.
The Seahawks on Thursday reached a deal with RB Mike Davis. It's somewhat surprising after they elected not to tender him as a restricted free agent, but Davis re-joins an open backfield situation. He flashed a bit among 3 games of 15+ carries last year but should face plenty of competition for touches this season. That should include a healthier C.J. Prosise -- if we finally get that -- plus at least 1 guy not currently on the roster (draft or free agency).
