Davis, who turned 26 in February, rushed for 514 yards and 4 touchdowns on 112 carries last season — all career highs — while still functioning as the Seattle Seahawks‘ No. 2 back behind Chris Carson and in front of first-round pick Rashaad Penny.
The Seahawks claimed Davis away waivers from 20 17 from the sanfrancisco 49ers, who drafted him in the fourth round (126th overall) out of sc in 2015. The Seahawks resigned him for a yearlong, $1.35 million deal last offseason after falling to tender him as a restricted free agent, that enabled Davis to negotiate with other teams as an unrestricted free agent.
The Seahawks were not predicted to make it a priority to re-sign Davis as insurance that off season given their real estate investment from Penny and Carson’s breakout 2018 season.
Davis averaged 4.2 yards per carry over two seasons with Seattle and has a 3.7-yard average in 35 career games.
Davis’ impending deal with Chicago was first reported by NFL Network.
