Saints Signing LB Demario Davis To Three-Year, $24M Deal

     

Dianna Russini reports that Jets free agent LB Demario Davis is expected to sign with a three-year, $24 million deal with the Saints. The contract reportedly includes $18 million guaranteed.

Davis, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Jets back in 2012. He spent four years in New York before signing a two-year, $8 million contract with the Browns that included $4.2 million guaranteed in 2016.

Davis was traded to the Jets in return for S Calvin Pryor last year and agreed to pay cut to facilitate a trade to New York. He was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

In 2017, Davis appeared in all 16 games for the Jets and recorded 135 tackles, five sacks, a fumble recovery and three pass defenses.
