The Los Angeles Chargers announced Saturday that they have promoted CB Michael Davis from their practice squad to the active roster and waived WR Geremy Davis in a corresponding roster move.
(Geremy) Davis, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Giants back in 2015. He managed to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season, but was later cut loose at the start of the 2016 season.
The Giants added him to their practice squad a few months into the season before losing him to the Chargers and he finished out the year in San Diego. The Chargers brought Davis back on a one-year, exclusive rights contract this past March before cutting him loose coming out of the preseason.
Los Angeles officially re-signed him to their practice squad earlier this month and the team promoted him to their active roster a week later.
In 2016, Davis appeared in three games but did not catch a single pass for the Chargers.
(Michael) Davis, 22, signed on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of BYU back in May. Los Angeles decided to waive him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit but signed to the team’s practice squad once he cleared waivers.
During his four-year college career at BYU, Davis recorded 109 total tackles, five tackles for loss, one interception, 15 pass defenses, one fumble recovery, and one forced fumble.
