The Baltimore Ravens have added depth to their backfield by signing veteran running back Mike Davis to a one-year contract. This comes after the Ravens had three running backs go down with season-ending injuries prior to the start of the 2021 season.
Davis can still be useful even if he is playing a supporting role, thus it was a smart move for Baltimore to make this substitution.
It was reported on Wednesday that the specifics of Davis’ contract were made public, and it appears that the Ravens were able to secure a rather advantageous deal for a player of Davis’ caliber.
The one-year contract that Davis has signed is reportedly worth $1.2025 million, as reported by Field Yates of ESPN. Yates elaborated by saying that the contract was a veteran salary benefits package that included a $152,500 signing bonus.
The Ravens were not only able to acquire Davis at a price that was beneficial to the organization, but the club was also given the opportunity to acquire a running back who is capable of contributing to the Baltimore offense despite the fact that he will only play a supporting role.
Davis might be in line to take on a significant portion of the early game work if running backs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are forced to miss any time in 2022 while they continue to make progress in their recoveries from injuries.
How Much Does Mike Davis Make?
