“I used to observe it each single day at six within the morning,” Davis mentioned of the video that is racked up greater than 8.6 million views. “Me watching that video impressed me (to) management what you possibly can management, mainly.
“I used to be considering to myself, ‘You’re keen on this sport. That is what you need to do for a very long time. Do not simply let it slip out of your arms.'”
Davis would get a possibility to play late that season, because the Seahawks handled a number of operating again accidents. He began six video games, selecting up 240 yards speeding and 15 receptions for 131 yards.
In 2018, Davis was a extra important issue within the Seattle’s rotation, taking part in 15 video games. He had 514 yards speeding with 4 speeding touchdowns, plus 34 receptions for 214 yards.
That earned Davis a two-year deal free-agent cope with the Bears, however he totaled solely 11 carries for 25 yards earlier than Chicago lower him final November. The Panthers swooped in, however Davis received to the membership so late he did not obtain a lot taking part in time on offense.
However throughout early evaluations this offseason, new senior offensive assistant/operating backs coach Jeff Nixon felt Davis can be a robust complement to McCaffrey.

He is received nice rush abilities. He catches the ball out of the backfield. So all of the issues that we ask a again to do, he can do all of them.”

“Simply be me, do not attempt to be another person,” Davis mentioned. “Play how I have been taking part in, put together how I have been getting ready, and simply play indignant.”
