The Chargers will be signing LB Thomas Davis, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Davis joins a crowded LB corps that will continue to start Denzel Perryman after re-signing him. Jatavis Brown figures to return to a backup role. We'll see how 2019 rookie Kyzir White fits in. Davis turns 36 on March 22 but remained a full-time player after returning from his season-opening PED suspension. We'll see how the Chargers sort out the corps. They haven't favored playing any LB at 100% in recent seasons. Davis' departure could allow LB Shaq Thompson to regain full playing time in Carolina. He's in the final year of his rookie contract.
Washington has ruled out LB Thomas Davis with a calf injury. That might help to explain why the veteran hasn't sat among the starters in the initial depth chart. We'll see how this LB situation sorts out in the early weeks. Try to avoid it with your IDP lineup for at least Week 1, if you can.
LB Thomas Davis announced Tuesday that he'll be signing with Washington. The move gets him back with former Panthers HC Ron Rivera. It also gives Davis a shot at maintaining a starter role. Washington is returning ILB Jon Bostic from last year's team and added former Bears LB Kevin Pierre-Louis this week. But its LB corps remains weak. Meanwhile, Davis -- who will turn 37 this month -- would seem to have little reason to sign so early without at least the promise of competing for a starting role. We'll see how this group shakes out for IDP purposes.
The Chargers have released LB Thomas Davis. The veteran opened last season as the team's playing-time leader at the position, but his snap counts dipped later in the season. Drue Tranquill -- a 4th-round pick in 2019 -- looks like the best bet to lead 2020 Chargers LBs in playing time at the moment. Expect the team to address the corps in some fashion this offseason, though. The Chargers have also restructured the contract of LB Denzel Perryman, shifting guaranteed salary to incentives. That doesn't point to him gaining snaps and becoming a bigger IDP contributor.
Chargers LB Thomas Davis is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos with a groin injury. He put in limited practices all week, though, and has rarely missed games throughout his career for non-devastating injuries. We'll check Davis' status Sunday afternoon, but bet on him playing if you have a decision to make.
