Knile Davis’ ridiculous ride has officially come full circle.
The Kansas City Chiefs announced they have signed the former Arkansas standout back to the active roster after trading Davis to the Green Bay Packers for a conditional draft pick three weeks ago.
The move made plenty of sense at the time. The Packers were short on tailbacks with Eddie Lacy and James Starks dealing with injuries. The Chiefs, on the other hand, had a surplus of running backs with Jamaal Charles, Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West all ahead of Davis on the depth chart.
Green Bay apparently wasn’t impressed by Davis. He received four combined carries in two games before being released on Halloween. Davis then signed with the New York Jets for maybe a couple of hours before the Jets released him and decided to sign C.J. Spiller.
Now, the Chiefs are searching for tailbacks. Charles was placed on injured reserve and will likely miss the rest of the season and Ware is going to miss Sunday’s game against Jacksonville due to a concussion.
So three weeks later, Davis ended up back where he started and the Chiefs pretty much got a free conditional draft pick from Green Bay. We’ll see if Davis remains with Kansas City for the duration of the season.
