The Jets also signed S Sharrod Neasman, TE Dan Brown and TE Ryan Griffin.

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.

Davis, 24, was a four-year starter at California and was a finalist for the Burlsworth Trophy before the Jets selected him with the No. 68 pick in the 2020 draft.

Davis signed a four-year $4,917,384  rookie contract that included a $1,136,280 signing bonus.

In 2020, Davis appeared in 10 games for the Jets and recorded 36 total tackles, one fumble recovery and one pass defense.
