Jaguars Waive S Akeem Davis & DT Louis Nix, Sign Two

The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed S Akeem Davis and DT Louis Nix on waivers Monday and signed S Jarrod Harper and DT Kevin Maurice, according to Mike Kaye.

Nix, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Texans back in May of 2014. He was entering the second year of his four-year, $2,852,252 rookie contract when he was among the Texans’ final roster at the start of the 2015 season.

The Giants elected to claim him off of waivers and brought him back on a future/reserve contract. However, he was cut loose as the Giants got down to 53 players coming out of the preseason last year.

Nix signed to the Redskins’ practice squad soon after only to waive him a few weeks into the season. He eventually later caught on with the Jaguars and returned to the team on a futures deal this past January.

In 2015, Nix appeared in four games for the Giants but did not record a single statistic.

Davis, 27, originally signed on with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of Memphis back in 2014. He lasted just over a year in Washington before he was cut at the start of the 2015 season.

Since then, Davis has played for several teams including the Saints, Buccaneers, Seahawks, Colts, and Chiefs before joining the Jaguars in October of last year.

in 2016, Davis was active for two games but did not record a statistic.
