Chiefs Shopping RB Knile Davis

The Chiefs are shopping running back Knile Davis, according to Jason La Canfora of (on Twitter). Knile Davis

Davis finds himself buried on Kansas City’s depth chart with Jaamal Charles, Charcandrick West, and Spencer Ware ahead of him on the depth chart. Late last month, West and Ware both inked brand new deals with KC that will keep them in the fold for the next two seasons.

Davis, meanwhile, reportedly requested a trade prior to the new deals for Charles’ primary backups. The Dolphins called the Chiefs about acquiring a running back in March and asked about all four tailbacks on KC’s depth chart, including Davis.

Davis was once listed as Charles’ primary backup, but he has since been leapfrogged by Ware and West. Last season, Davis’ main contribution came in the Wild Card playoffs when he opened up the contest against the Texans with a 106-yard kick return touchdown. In the regular season, Davis had just 28 total carries for 72 yards and one score. Over three seasons for the Chiefs, the former third-round pick has carried the ball 232 times for 777 yards, good for a 3.3 yards-per-carry average.

    He has always been solid when he gets the rock. A 7th or maybe a 6th and someone could have a decent back. I don’t know why there have been no nibbles. Detroit, Seattle, Cleveland, lots of teams need backs and this is not a year to find much in the draft. He will be on a roster come August.

    Agreed I would love him as the fall back if AA can’t get it done in Detroit
