The Ravens have acquired cornerback Will Davis from the Dolphins, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter links). The Dolphins have been shopping Davis all month long and it appears that they have finally found a taker.
Davis, a 2013 third-round pick, was placed on IR in November of 2014 after tearing his ACL. Up until that point, he had only been playing on slightly more than 20% of Miami’s defensive snaps. Coming into this summer, Davis told reporters, including Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, that he was feeling pretty strong, albeit not at 100%. The fact that Davis found his way back to the practice field at all in June was impressive since an ACL tear typically requires a nine-to-12 month layoff.
Some speculated that Davis could put himself in the mix for the starting cornerback job opposite of Brent Grimes, but things did not pan out that way. Instead, Davis found himself on Miami’s roster bubble. The Dolphins didn’t get a massive return here, but they did get something for their former third round choice rather than nothing.
