Seems like I always find my way to go ta war for my home team… Canton McKinley, University of Akron and now Cleveland Browns. Thank you to the Cleveland Browns organization for believing me. I’m truly thankful and ready to show what I can bring to the table. #Browns pic.twitter.com/6jyzLxxQXp

He was an UDFA in the 2019 NFL Draft.
In his short NFL career, he has bounced around to various teams starting with the Houston Texans practice squad in 2019.
Davis also spent time on the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans practice squads.
His last stop in 2019 was the Miami Dolphins where he made appearances in 3 games on both defense and special teams.
In 2020, he once again joined the Tennessee Titans practice squad only to be waived after the first week of the season.
Browns Depleted Defense
The Browns found themselves shorthanded at defensive end against the Jaguars on Sunday.
Myles Garrett was activated on Tuesday, December 1, and will be available for the Titans game.
Meanwhile, the Browns will be without safety Ronnie Harrison who was put on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, and cornerback Denzel Ward continues to recover from his calf strain and will not play on Sunday.
Browns Remaining Schedule
The Cleveland Browns need to get as healthy as possible for the five-game final stretch of the 2020 season.
Besides facing a tough Titans team, the Browns have rematches with the divisional rivals responsible for two of their three losses on the season.
They are the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Currently, the 8-3 Browns are seeded 5th in the AFC.
There is a lot of football remaining so the Browns are in a must-win situation each week.
