Mike Davis was a non-factor last season after Marty Hurney claimed him off waivers from the Bears. But he’s been way more involved this summer, and seems to be the front-runner to claim the backup role behind Christian McCaffrey.
Davis told The Athletic last week it was “refreshing” to get a clean slate with a new coaching staff, which has seen him emerge as a dual-threat, No. 2 back. “I think Mike Davis has had a great camp,” HC Matt Rhule said. “He’s running. He’s getting open.” This is worth noting for potential McCaffrey owners looking for his handcuff.
