Todd Davis will travel to meet with the Vikings once he clears COVID protocols, according to Mike Klis of 9News (on Twitter). This marks the first known visit for the linebacker since he was released from the Broncos earlier this month.
Davis had been with the Broncos since 2014, and, over time, he evolved into one of the organization’s most productive players. Despite appearing in only 14 games last season, the 28-year-old finished with a career-high 134 tackles. Over the course of six NFL seasons – including a brief stint with the Saints – Davis has appeared in 85 games while logging 63 starts. Davis was set to count for $6MM against the Broncos’ cap this year. Instead, they dropped him to gain $1.5MM in additional wiggle room.
If signed, Davis would help provide support in the wake of Anthony Barr‘s season-ending pectoral injury. There’s no question that the Vikes could use the help, especially after their rough start to the 2020 season. This week, they’ll try to get on the right track against the Titans.
