McNichols, 23, is a former fifth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2017. He signed a four-year contract worth $2,663,788 with Tampa Bay but was, unfortunately, cut loose coming out of the preseason.

From there, McNichols had brief stints with the 49ers, Colts and Broncos before the Titans signed him to their active roster last year. Tennessee elected to cut him loose this past September.

During his college career at Boise State, McNichols rushed for 3,205 yards on 571 carries (5.6 YPC) to go along with 103 receptions for 1,089 yards receiving and 55 total touchdowns over the course of three seasons and 34 games.

Davis, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia back in 2017. He was, unfortunately, waived coming out of the preseason and later claimed by the Browns.

Davis later returned to the Falcons and had a brief stint on the Eagles’ practice squad before the Cowboys signed him to their taxi squad last year. Davis was waived by Dallas coming out of the preseason this year. 

During his four-year college career at Georgia, Davis recorded 47 kickoff returns for 998 yards (21.2 YPR) and 34 punt returns for 251 yards (7.4 YPR) and scored one touchdown. As a receiver, Davis caught 38 passes for 618 yards receiving (16.3 YPC) for two touchdowns.
