Davis signed a future/reserve contract with the Bears on Monday.
Analysis: Davis signed to the Bears' practice squad a little less than a month ago after spending time with the Cowboys earlier in the season.
Chicago signed Davis to its practice squad Wednesday.
Analysis: Davis was cut by the Cowboys in August. Joining Chicago's practice squad is certainly a positive development for the 24-year-old's career, but don't expect to see Davis in a game anytime soon.
Davis was cut by the Cowboys on Friday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Davis boasts a 4.31-second 40-yard dash time and offers upside as a return man, but ultimately wasn't able to carve out a depth role in Dallas. He could catch the eye of another team as a developmental project.
Davis was a standout performer at OTAs on Wednesday, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Analysis: Davis recorded a 4.31-second 40 time at his pro day in 2017 and he evidently has been flashing that speed in practice. On Wednesday, he caught two bombs in the two-minute drill, including one a go route. If he can keep up the good work, Davis could force his way into consideration for a roster spot in August.
Davis signed a contract with the Cowboys on Thursday, according to the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Davis spent the 2017 season on Atlanta's practice squad and failed to make the team's 53-man roster last season. The 25-year-old is still looking to make his NFL debut after going undrafted out of Georgia in the 2017 draft.
Davis was waived by the Falcons on Saturday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: After spending 2017 on Atlanta's practice squad, Davis failed to progress to the active roster in his second year out of Georgia. Davis' otherworldly speed could make him an asset on special teams with another team, but he struggled mightily as a receiver during the preseason, hauling in just three of 11 targets and dropping multiple passes in the Falcons' final exhibition game against Miami on Friday.
Davis failed to record a reception despite being targeted on six occasions during Thursday night's 34-7 loss to the Dolphins.
Analysis: The second-year speedster out of Georgia severely disappointed in what may have been the most vital game of his young NFL career to this point, dropping a number of passes and appearing timid when running routes over the center of the field. On the opening play of the second half Kurt Benkert targeted Davis on a slant over the middle, but the pass deflected off the receiver's hands and into the awaiting arms of Dolphins safety Jordan Lucas. Davis' remarkable quickness and athleticism could play a role in him sneaking onto the roster as a special teams contributor, but his performance as a pass-catcher was abysmal during the preseason -- three receptions for 18 yards on 11 targets.
