Multiple media outlets and Davis’ agent are reporting that he has signed with the Lions. Davis’ signing was not unexpected as he met with the team earlier in the season and there were rumors the Lions wanted to sign him. Davis’ addition will add depth along the offensive line, but he will directly compete with RG Stephen Peterman who has been struggling this year after an injury plagued 2010 season.
Davis is a mauling run blocker with a nasty streak, but he is an average pass blocker. He has played guard and tackle in the NFL and was a member of the Cowboys last season.
