Packers waive Knile Davis

The Packers have waived running back Knile Davis, per multiple reports.

The Packers acquired Davis in a trade with the Chiefs two weeks ago. He carried five times for five yards over two games for the Packers.

Davis will now be subject to the waiver system and eligible to be claimed on Tuesday. Davis, 25, was a third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2013 and has 11 career rushing touchdowns.

Unless the Packers plan to sign a free agent from a pretty thin pool of available backs, releasing Davis is probably a sign that the team believes wide receiver/running back Ty Montgomery will be healthy and that James Starks is recovering well from knee surgery he had two weeks ago.

  1. Um, Kniles is NOT a bad player so well, good luck with that Packers.

    Especially after just coming off a loss where your most rushing yards, not including Rodgers, was your fullback.

    But the Chiefs keep the draft pick they got for him. LOL

    =================================

    Actually they don’t. Nice try though!

  3. I’d love to have been a fly on the wall during the discussions that led to this.
    As long as Rodgers wasn’t nearby with the swatter.

  4. Yet another reason why doing business with the Packers is. It a good idea.

    KC is out a RB after the draft pick they traded for is no longer valid because the packers cut Knile.

    Net net…KC loses out on dealing with the Packers. A franchise known to lie to its own fans by selling them fake stock.

  5. Can we waive McCarthy, or at least waive goodbye to him? The Packers were scoring at will until he decided to get involved at halftime and go away from the 4 and 5 WR sets. He likes making believe he is committed to the run by throwing sideways passes to Adams.

  6. Tightwad Ted decided that for the money he’s paying Rodgers, Aaron can play both QB and RB.

    He had a much higher average rushing the ball than throwing the ball.

    Fact!

  7. When you’re cracking off 1 ypc you should expect to be released. They gave you a shot, you showed nothing.
    Everyone moves on.

    Arodg was responsible for more points against Atlanta than the Vikes offense has scored in their last 2 games combined. Fact!

    This makes absolutely no sense. Name me one team who wouldn’t take advantage of this scenario: trade for a RB who you know won’t be the long-term solution, and use him for a couple weeks while your injured RB gets healthy. Recognize, after 2 games, that: 1. Starks is getting healthier, and will be back shortly and 2. Davis wasn’t working out, so we’ll cut our ties and keep our draft pick before the 3 weeks.

    Yes, the absolute nerve of a team making a smart business/team decision. They should be ashamed of themselves…
