Jaguars defensive end Ryan Davis signed his one-year tender, according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com. He will make $2.553MM in 2016 , which, as DiRocco notes, is more than four times what he made in 2015.
Davis, 27, has appeared in 38 games over the last four years for Jacksonville, earning three accrued seasons during that stretch. He has never played more than a part-time role, but he has shown a knack for getting after the quarterback when he sees the field, recording 11 sacks and three forced fumbles in his NFL career. In 2015, Davis played 250 defensive snaps and picked up 3.5 sacks. He also received the top pass-rushing grade from Pro Football Focus out of any of the Jaguars’ edge defenders or interior linemen.
