Veteran running back Mike Davis has found a new home for the 2022 season.

According to multiple reports, Davis has agreed to a contract with the Ravens. The Falcons released Davis last week.

Davis ran 138 times for 503 yards and three touchdowns in his lone season with the Falcons. He also caught 44 passes for 259 yards and a score. Davis set career-highs across the board while posting 1,015 total yards with the Panthers during the 2020 season.

The Ravens were left shorthanded at running back after season-ending injuries to J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, and Justice Hill ahead of last season. Everyone’s on track to return to action this year, but Davis gives Baltimore an experienced option should things take a turn for the worse again in 2022.

  1. A lot of talk that Hill is done in Baltimore so this may be a part of that move.

  2. People forgot about how effective Davis was in Carolina backing up McCaffrey. Atlanta got caught up in using Cordarrelle Patterson as a utility knife player and left little meat/opportunity on the bone for Davis. This is a very good signing for Baltimore. They should get the player we last saw in Carolina at a bargain price!

  3. Few questions…why not bring back freeman? He was fairly effective last season and knows the system. Also, it feels as if those 2 acl injuries are not healing as fast as the Ravens would like. Baltimore always seems to know what they are doing though so we’ll see!

  4. Camp body/early season back. They’ll ease Edwards and Dobbins back into action this year to mitigate the chance of an early injury and to keep them fresh. If he plays well and proves to be durable, he’s probably found a home for another year or two.

  5. Didn’t they also draft two rbs? So, now they have Justice Hill, Gus Edwards, JK Dobbins, Tyler Badie, Ricky Person, Ty’Son Williams, Nate McCrary AND Lamar Jackson…that’s a lot of running backs.
