Chiefs bring back Knile Davis

Knile Davis has come full circle.

Davis, the running back who has gone from the Chiefs to the Packers to the Jets to the waiver wire in the last month, re-signed with the Chiefs today.

The Chiefs traded Davis to the Packers at a time when it looked like Kansas City had a glut of running backs. But since then Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware have suffered injuries, leaving the Chiefs with little depth at the position. The return of Davis should improve that depth.

Davis was only available because of the odd journey he’s been on since the Chiefs traded him last month: The Packers waived him after two ineffective games. Then the Jets claimed him on waivers only to waive him the next day.

The Chiefs have also promoted defensive end David King from the practice squad to the active roster, placed guard Parker Ehinger on injured reserve and waived guard Jordan Devey.

  1. Welcome back! I haven’t forgotten that kickoff return against the Texans. Patriots fumble was a stinger, but he’s still a productive back. Wonder what he did in Green Bay and NY to scare them off.

  2. I remember packer homers saying he’s the best thing to happen to their offense, watching his kick return from the playoff game last year over and over again trying to find a little hope. He’s probably better than Lacy but not by much..

  3. I had a feeling if he passed through waivers they would sign him right before the game. he already knows the playbook and can step in without missing a beat. Plus side as well he is a different type RB then CW, so that should give the Jags a little bit of a fit for last minute game planning.

  4. Updating his resume just got complicated. He’d better hire it out at after this.

  5. Glad to see this. He said he was excited about going to GB but then the merry-go-round started. Hope he got paid for the time/travel.
