The Dolphins have signed German Football League MVP Tyler Davis to a contract, as NFL Draft Diamonds reports. As a pre-Super Bowl signing for a non-playoff team, Davis’ deal is of the reserve/futures variety. Davis, the son of former Raiders running back Clarence Davis, has experience playing on both sides of the football.
Davis was an All-American cornerback Missouri Valley College but he went undrafted in 2014 and was unable to hook on with an NFL team. Rather than heading north to play in the Canadian Football League or stay in the states with the Arena Football League, Davis inked a deal with the Munich Cowboys. In his rookie GFL season, Davis caught 28 receptions for 686 yards and scored seven touchdowns while also moonlighting at cornerback and hauling in six picks.
This past season, Davis took home the MVP trophy while playing for the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes. Davis tallied 1,733 yards receiving off of 94 catches and scored 24 touchdowns. He also contributed on defense and once again registered six interceptions.
