Target leader Sumday

Davis (suspension) caught five of a team-high 10 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-10 win over the Falcons in preseason Week 3.

Analysis: Davis was slapped with a two-game suspension that doesn't apply until the regular season, but the 24-year-old wideout managed to raise his profile during the preseason. He caught at least three passes all three preseason games while leading the team with 154 receiving yards. Unfortunately, it's probably not enough to win a spot on the 53-man roster.

Handed two-game suspension

Davis has been suspended two games for violating the NFL's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Analysis: Davis will be eligible to finish out the preseason during Sunday's matchup against the Falcons, but he will be forced to sit out the first two weeks of the regular season. The second-year pro has strung together an impressive training camp to this point, with a team-high 157 receiving yards in the Browns' first two exhibition matchups.

Yardage leader again

Davis caught three of four targets for a team-high 45 yards in Sunday's 17-13 win over the Giants in Preseason Week 2.

Analysis: With starters Odell Beckham (knee) and Jarvis Landry sitting out the first two weeks of preseason, Davis is getting plenty of run and leads the Browns with 101 receiving yards. He also led the team with 56 yards last week against the Jaguars. Davis is unlikely to win a roster spot, as Cleveland has established players with system knowledge head of him, but he's done enough to be considered a candidate for the practice squad. That would also mean another team would be lurking if the Browns try to sneak him through waivers.

Shines in opener

Davis caught four of five targets for a team-high 56 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 23-13 victory over the Jaguars in Preseason Week 1.

Analysis: Davis made a high-point touchdown catch, leaping over the defender at the end of the first half. He managed to hang onto the ball while falling backwards in the end zone and keeping his feet in bounds. Davis continued his run with a deep-ball catch at Tuesday's practice, securing the ball as he fell to the ground along the sidelines, Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site reports. "I think Davion is a great example of a young player who is just going to control the things that he can control," head coach Kevin Stefanski said. The Browns are loaded at wide receiver, and there's very little chance Davis makes the initial 53-man roster.

Joins Cleveland

Davis signed a contract with the Browns on Saturday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Analysis: Davis was let go by the Vikings early in camp last year and didn't see game action in 2020. The 24-year-old appeared in two games during 2019 but is still looking for his first career reception.

No court ruling

Davis' hearing Tuesday for a drunken driving arrest Oct. 26 came to no resolution, Nick Ferraro of the Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: According to the police report, the wide receiver was stopped in the early morning hours of Oct. 26 after a state trooper clocked him going 81 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone. Davis pleaded not guilty to the charges in December, and he's now due back in court Mar. 31 for a pre-trial hearing.

Inks futures deal with Minnesota

Davis signed a reserve/future deal with the Vikings on Monday.

Analysis: Davis appeared in two games for Minnesota this season but spent most of 2019 on the team's practice squad. The undrafted rookie out of Sam Houston State will now have full offseason with the team to prepare for his sophomore campaign.

Facing legal troubles

Davis was charged with drunk driving in St. Paul on Monday, Paul Walsh of the Star Tribune reports.

Analysis: According to the police report, Davis was stopped about 2:55 a.m. on Oct. 26 after a state trooper clocked him going 81 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone. Davis has resided on the Vikings' practice squad since Oct. 14, and was active for Week's 8 and 10 this season.

Finds place on practice squad

Davis signed with the Vikings' practice squad Wednesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Davis cleared waivers Wednesday, and conveniently, a practice-squad spot opened up when the Titans signed running back Khari Blasingame to their 53-man roster. The former could be brought back to the active roster if Adam Thielen (hamstring) is unable to play Sunday against the Broncos.

Re-joins Vikings' practice squad

Davis signed with the Vikings' practice squad on Monday.

Analysis: Davis, an undrafted free agent, landed on the Vikings' practice squad to kickoff the year after failing to earn a role on their 53-man roster. He eventually got called up prior to Week 4 in order to provide depth at wide receiver. He will now revert back to the practice unit after failing to register a single snap since originally being promoted.

Oct 14, 2019 3:52 PM EST


Waived from roster

Davis was waived by the Vikings on Saturday.

Analysis: Davis will likely revert to the team's practice squad after failing to register a snap since being called up in Week 4. As a result, the Vikings will roll with only four active receivers Sunday.

Oct 12, 2019 8:30 PM EST


Joins active roster

The Vikings promoted Davis to their 53-man roster Saturday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Davis was waived by the team during final roster cuts, but subsequently went unclaimed and landed on their practice squad. The move was made to bolster depth at wide receiver, as Chad Beebe (ankle) was just placed on injured reserve. The undrafted rookie is now the fifth pass-catcher on the depth chart, but will primarily contribute on special teams.

Added to practice squad

Davis signed with the Vikings practice squad on Monday.

Analysis: This comes just one day after Davis was waived by the Vikings as part of the team's final roster cuts. He joined Minnesota as an undrafted free agent, and the team has elected to keep him around on the practice squad after he cleared waivers.

Sep 5, 2019 1:38 PM EST


Waived by Vikings

Davis was waived by the Vikings on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Davis joined Minnesota as an undrafted free agent and he was competing for a depth receiver and special teams role. He could be a practice squad candidate if he clears waivers.
