The NFL announced Friday that Chargers CB Michael Davis has been suspended without pay two games for violating the NFL policy on substances of abuse.
Here’s the statement from the Chargers:
“We respect and support the League’s decision in regard to the suspension of Michael Davis. Michael is a good person who made a significant mistake this past offseason.”
Davis, 24, signed on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of BYU back in 2017. 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.
Davis was promoted to the Chargers’ active roster soon after and he’s remained on the 53-man unit ever since.
Davis is currently in the final year of his three-year, $1.66 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $645,000 for the 2019 season. He’ll be a restricted free agent in 2020.
In 2019, Davis has appeared in nine games for the Chargers and recorded 27 tackles, one interception and five pass defenses.
