They signed him after also working out former Baltimore Ravens safety Christian Thompson.

At Memphis, Davis played in 34 career games with 27 starts and twice was named a team captain. He recorded162 career tackles, three interceptions, 2.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries.

Davis spent time with the Seattle Seahawks last season at a rookie minicamp.
