I don't think Pace and Nagy are bringing this guy in to start. I don't think was a possibility anyway.

He’s depth... what’s killing your boner?



Are you sure? Average AAV is 2.2M, bears sure aren’t paying him like depth. I live in Seattle and have seen enough of Davis to know what the bears are getting and it’s not better than Howard. Much like Howard, he thrives on inside zone and designed screens. Isn’t much of an outside passing threat which I thought Nagy was looking for?

@RapSheet

Former #Seahawks RB Mike Davis is signing with the #Bears, source said. The former practice squad earns his first big payday.


Now following the 2018 season, Davis has proven to be a versatile force in a new NFL offensive landscape where versatility is the spice of life. Not only was he the NFL's 37st best rusher with 514 yards on 112 attempts (4.6 yards per carry) along with four rushing touchdowns but he also provided 34 receptions out of 42 targets for an additional 214 yards and a touchdown. Rising from the fourth running back on the depth chart at the beginning of the season to the team's unquestioned third-down back and fill-in when Chris Carson was hurt, Davis now finds himself in the driver's seat for a much bigger payday than $1.2 million over a single year.


I like this signing a lot. I hope we still draft a guy early.


Also, when am I able to send PMs on here?

Sooooooo they are paying him basically what Cunningham/Mizzel were making.

I would say he is depth that is a hedge against getting a rookie up to speed and he also performed well in starter duty. On the plus side, if it means the end of Mizzell ever seeing the field for the bears again its a double bonus.

Frankly Bell is a pipe dream that wasn't ever going to happen $ wise, even at a bargain price of 10 million it would be too steep considering current and future impacts to their ability to sign and resign others.

Pretty close. Maybe a hair more depending on how the contract is structured, but definitely not any reason to believe they just signed atheir starting running back.

I should have said, the 2.2 AAV is average STARTER money. Cunningham/Mizzel were making a combined 1.35M. To date Davis is the highest paid RB on the team and about the 18th overall. If Howard is moved, he’ll be splitting reps with Cohen unless they draft and fall in love with that back during camp.

This signing doesn’t make much sense to me. I don’t see how the running or passing game got better with this signing. I’m trusting Pace and Nagy though but this is the first signing from Pace that has me scratching my head.

I like the deal. Now Pace has some options as to how to proceed with dealing Howard if possible and also how to draft.

Davis appears to be a shorter but quicker and more elusive version of Howard but far more of a natural receiver. But he's more of a supplemental back in a Running Back by Committee backfield than a 20+ carry lead back. With his versatility he looks to be a slight upgrade over Howard.

Have to agree with Wab on this one. He looks to be a replacement for Cunningham, not Howard. If Howard is going to be traded, then I imagine there are a couple RBs in the draft we are targeting. I doubt that Mike Davis is here to replace him.

I dunno man... he's awwwwfully similar to Kareem Hunt from a pure metrics standpoint:

Hunt:

5’10” 216 lb
4.62 40
18 bench reps
4.53 short shuttle
36.5 vertical
9’11” broad
7.22 3-cone

Davis:

5’9” 217 lb
4.61 40 (4.52 at Pro Day)
17 bench reps
4.18 short shuttle
34.0 vertical
9’8” broad
7.00 3-cone


No, I'm not saying this kid is going to be or is expected to be Kareem Hunt... but he's got some talent to him.
