Terez A. Paylor reports that the Packers are trading for Chiefs RB Knile Davis, due to a number of injuries they’ve sustained at the position.
- Adam Schefter reports that the Packers are a conditional 2018 seventh-round draft pick to the Chiefs for Davis.
Davis has been on the trading block for a few years now, so it doesn’t come as a big surprise to see him dealt to a running back-needy team.
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.
According to OverTheCap.com, trading Davis would free up $700,000 in available cap space while creating $126,504 in dead money.
In 2016, Davis has appeared in four games and ran for -2 yards on a single carry to go along with two receptions for 14 yards receiving and no touchdowns for the Chiefs. Davis has added 126 kick return yards.
