Hopefully Knile Davis hasn’t signed a longterm lease anywhere recently.
In a two-week span, the former Arkansas running back has gone from the Kansas City Chiefs to the Green Bay Packers and, now, to the New York Jets, per Pro Football Talk. On Tuesday, they claimed Davis off waivers from the Packers, who waived him Monday.
Davis was dealt from Kansas City to Green Bay a couple weeks back — but the Packers won’t have to give the Chiefs anything in return, as Davis didn’t last three weeks in Green Bay, a clause in the trade.
Instead, he will join a backfield of Matt Forte and Bilal Powell in New York. After rushing only five times for five yards with the Packers, Davis ought to get some chances with the Jets.
Davis played four years for the Razorbacks, becoming their first-string running back as a sophomore before suffering an injury that forced him to miss his junior season and part of his senior season. Over parts of three seasons for Arkansas, Davis rushed for 1,862 yards and accounted for 297 through the air.
