Packers Waive RB Knile Davis Just A Few Weeks After Trading For Him

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Packers have placed RB Knile Davis on waivers Monday.

This comes just a few weeks after the Packers sent a conditional 2018 seventh-round draft pick to the Chiefs for Davis.

By cutting Davis, the Packers won’t owe the Chiefs this draft pick. It also appears to be a good indication that James Starks and Ty Montgomery are closer to returning.

Interestingly enough, the Chiefs could actually use a running back now that Jamaal Charles continues to deal with knee issues and Spencer Ware suffered a concussion on Sunday. We’ll have to see if they put in a waiver claim for Davis.

Davis, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2013. He’s in the final year if his four-year, $2.751 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Davis has appeared in six games and ran for three yards on six carries to go along with four receptions for 18 yards receiving and no touchdowns for the Chiefs. Davis has added 126 kick return yards.
