LB - NYJ - IR
Week 3 Outlook
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Jets and former Lions LB Jarrad Davis to a 1-year, $7 million deal.
After a disappointing career in Detroit, Davis decides to take his talents to New York with the Jets. Newly acquired Jets coach Robert Salah thinks the new addition can be a primary defender on the team after the Lions misused him.
The Lions activated LB Jarrad Davis from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Davis missed the Lions' Week 9 matchup against the Vikings but should be good to go this Sunday against Washington.
The Lions placed LB Jarrad Davis on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Davis is a 2017 first-round pick who is having a fantastic season. He'll miss this Sunday's Week 9 game against the Vikings.
The Lions are not expected to extend a fifth-year tender to linebacker Jarrad Davis, which will make him a free agent after the 2020 season.
2017's 21st overall pick and Lions team captain will hit free agency prior to the 2021 season. Davis has started in all 41 games since being drafted out of Florida but had his 2019 season cut short after an ankle injury landed him on IR. He's been a bit up and down throughout his first three seasons, sometimes looking out of his element and other times looking like the Lions' best player. Davis's upside and potential will certainly make him a hot target after this season.
Jarrad Davis finished Sunday’s loss to Washington with eight total tackles (six solo) and his second sack of the season.
Davis is second on the team in total tackles with 56 through Week 12. During that time period, he has two sacks and three forced fumbles. He should only be played in deeper IDP leagues and for certain in Week 15 against the Buccaneers.
