Oakland raids practice squad for FB Davis

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

Look for the Bears to be in the market for a practice squad fullback.

Jason Davis will sign a deal to join the Oakland Raiders' 53-man roster, his agent Peter Schaffer said this evening.

The Bears signed Davis to the practice squad Sept. 1 and the former player under Ron Turner at Illinois picked up the offense quickly. The Raiders called Davis after losing starting fullback Justin Griffith for the season on Sunday at Baltimore with a torn ACL in his right knee. Their only other fullback is Luke Lawton, who has played mostly on special teams.

The Bears would figure to replace Davis with another fullback because they are carrying only one--Jason McKie--on the active roster and they like to have two for practice purposes.

I thought I was pretty good at knowing our roster but I drew a complete blank when I read the name. Must have missed the article when we signed him.

Whew! I seriously thought they picked up Kellen Davis! That kid is going to be a stud once given an opportunity. Glad it wasn't him.

Freddie, Kellen Davis is neither a fullback nor is he on the practice squad. If you know enough about him that you think he'll be a stud, you should have known at least that much.
