Green Bay acquired Davis from the Chiefs earlier this month after starter Eddie Lacy and primary backup James Starks were sidelined with injuries. However, his short stay in Wisconsin ended yesterday when the Packers cut him loose. Apparently, they saw enough out of him after he amassed just five yards off of five carries for them.

Now, Davis is hoping to find better results on his third team of the year. As it stands, Davis will join Matt Forte, Bilal Powell, and Troymaine Pope on the Jets’ running back depth chart, though it’s possible that Davis’ arrival could bump Pope from the roster.
