Twitter reacts to Bears signing OG Nate Davis in free agency
The Chicago Bears finally made a move on the offensive line in free agency, agreeing to terms with offensive guard Nate Davis.
It’s a three-year, $30 million deal with $19.25 million guaranteed for Davis.
Davis started 54 games for the Tennessee Titans at guard in his first four seasons. He’s played primarily at right guard in his career, which should make for some interesting decisions for Chicago. Does that mean left guard Cody Whitehair could be a salary cap casualty? Is Teven Jenkins on the move from right guard? All things that will work themselves out.
Davis, 26, has been a solid run blocker, which makes him a great fit in Luke Getsy’s offense. But he’s also solid in pass protection, which makes this another win for quarterback Justin Fields.
The one concern with Davis has been health, as he’s only played one full season.
Here’s how Twitter is reacting to the Bears signing Davis:
Okay I’ll take that! Wanted some type of signing at guard
Begs the question if they cut Cody now https://t.co/7HbceZiVtt

Interesting signing. He has played at right guard his entire career. Does he move to LG? Does Teven Jenkins? Is Jenkins back in a reserve role or on the block after a decent year? https://t.co/sbdkeU0RoI

Big time signing at a position of need, and still just 26-years old for the #Bears. https://t.co/MXMlYi6gqN

I’m still in Edwards film so we’ll get to Davis soon, but all I’ve ever heard about him are good things.
27 year old player who comes from a scheme similar to what they want to do — I’m curious about the money, but it’s nice to see a trench add 👌 https://t.co/PTwBBnfPRH

Initial feeling here is that Mustipher is done, Whitehair at C. OL looks like

Putting Justin Fields in a position to succeed — Weapons on offense (traded for two WRs) and talent on the offensive line (Nate Davis). https://t.co/gvmvfAxsdN

Boom! Inside taken care of. Whitehair either released or moves to center. Now just need a tackle. https://t.co/iTzyO28u8h

The Bears are going to be sitting at the NFC elite table in 2024. Their GM is getting shit done and you have to tip your hat to him. They’ll struggle for one more year but after that, they’re going be in the mix. https://t.co/JzwpUPXCr1

Not knowledgeable on Nate Davis…. But 26 year old with very little yellow flags thrown at him seems like a good thing. https://t.co/3OJJHXvo2h

Nice. Probably means Cody Whitehair is gone, which is ideal.
I’m admittedly not too familiar with Davis’ game at this point in time, but I haven’t heard anything negative so we’ll take it. https://t.co/lyPDdhaFFA

Had him in my mock off-season.
Could mean Cody Whitehair is on his way out the door. #Bears https://t.co/bNqi6kUh75

I don't know who that is but I also watched the Bears offensive line last year and am certain he is an upgrade https://t.co/NsYTzB5mAK

Nate Davis — 77 OVR. Tied for 2nd highest OL on the team. 25 years old. I wonder what his Potential rating is. 90 Strength 💪. This is the right way to assess what is happening. Go Bears. https://t.co/ffFbPF0Wki

Nate Davis was brilliant in pass protection last season, and he’s a scheme fit. And he’s 27 this season.
