Davis, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Lions out of Florida back in 2017. He just finished the final year of his four-year, $10.96 million contract and made a base salary of $1.96 million for the 2020 season.
Detroit declined Davis’ fifth-year option last May, which made him an unrestricted free agent in 2021. He signed a one-year deal worth up to $7 million with the Jets.
In 2020, Davis appeared in 14 games and recorded 43 total tackles, one for a loss, 0.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles.
