The two former Wildcats will oppose each other on March 23.
Mike Davis Free agency status: Unrestricted free agent Opening day age: 28 2020 team: Carolina Panthers 2020 statistics: 15 games; 165 carries, 642 rushing yards, 6 rushing touchdowns; 59 catches, 373 receiving yards, 2 receiving touchdowns For much of his career in the NFL so far, Mike Davis was a backup player with little production to his name.
Though he ranked toward the bottom of the NFL in most passing categories, Newton did prove he’s still a weapon as a ball-carrier — his 12 rushing touchdowns were tied for fourth-most in the league — and garnered rave reviews from coaches for his work ethic and accountability. Give him a full offseason and a more talented group of pass-catchers, the argument goes, and he’s bound to be better than he was in 2020. Right?
