The Baltimore Ravens signed veteran running back Mike Davis to a one-year deal, adding depth to their backfield that saw three running backs go down with season-ending injuries before the 2021 season began. The move was a solid one for Baltimore, as Davis can still be productive even in a backup role.
The details of Davis’ contract were reportedly released on Wednesday, and it seems as if the Ravens got a pretty good deal for a player such as Davis. According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Davis’ one-year deal is worth $1.2025 million. Yates added the contract was a veteran salary benefit deal with a $152.5k signing bonus.

Not only did the Ravens get Davis at a good price, the team was also able to bring in a running back who can still produce even if he plays a limited role in the Baltimore offense. If running backs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards need to miss any time in 2022 as they continue recovering from their injuries, Davis could be expected to get a heavy workload early.
