Ravens sign RB Mike Davis to one-year deal


The Baltimore Ravens signed free agent running back Mike Davis to a one-year deal on Tuesday. Terms were not disclosed.

The Atlanta Falcons released the 29-year-old veteran last week to save $2.5 million against the salary cap.

Davis rushed for 503 yards and three touchdowns in 17 games (eight starts) for the Falcons in 2021. He also caught 44 passes for 259 yards and a score.

Davis has rushed for 2,034 yards and 14 TDs in 79 games (30 starts) for five different teams. He started his career with the San Francisco 49ers after they selected him in the fourth round of the 2015 draft.

In Baltimore, he adds experience and depth to a position that dealt with season-ending knee injuries to J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards in 2021.

The Ravens’ leading rusher in each of the past three seasons was quarterback Lamar Jackson.

The Ravens on Tuesday also withdrew their tender to RB Ty’Son Williams, opening a roster spot for Davis. Williams is now a free agent.

Williams rushed for 185 yards and a touchdown in 13 games (three starts) last season. He also caught nine passes for 84 yards. He also played 40 snaps on special teams.
