Giants claim WR/KR Davis

EAST
RUTHERFORD, NJ
- The Giants today added a wide receiver
who can also contribute in the return game when they were awarded Chris
Davis off waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals.

Davis, a 2007 fourth-round draft choice of the Tennessee Titans, did
not play in 2009 after sustaining a hamstring injury in the Hall of Fame
game against Buffalo. The two sides reached an injury settlement and
Davis briefly rejoined the Titans from Nov. 3-7. He was signed by the
Bengals on March 12 and waived yesterday.
In two seasons with Tennessee (2007-08), Davis played in 17 regular
season games (getting snaps from scrimmage in 13 of them) and one
postseason game. He caught seven passes for 68 yards, with a long of 21
yards against Houston on Sept. 21, 2008. Davis averaged 9.1 yards on 33
punt returns with a long runback of 39 yards and averaged 26.0 yards on
six kickoff returns with a long of 33 yards.
The Giants have yet to identify their top punt and kickoff returners
after Domenik Hixon suffered a season-ending knee injury in a mini-camp
practice last week.
Davis was the 128th overall selection of the NFL Draft. In a
four-year career at Florida State, he played in 51 games with 22 starts
and had 137 receptions for 1,842 yards and 12 touchdowns. His 137
catches tied for fifth on the school's all-time list. Davis led the team
in receptions in each of his final two seasons and he closed out his
career catching at least one pass in 25 consecutive contests.
As a senior in 2006, Davis led the team with 26 punt returns for 224
yards, an 8.6-yard average.
Davis was a Parade All-America at Catholic High School in St.
Petersburg, where he played quarterback, defensive back and wide
receiver. As a senior, he passed for 1,580 yards and rushed for another
1,530 yards.
Davis was born on Jan. 23, 1984.

Davis isn't that experienced returning kicks and punts in the NFL

I think Davis is a long shot to make the roster considering how much competition there is at WR.

It does show how much of a problem that Hixon's injury is.

It's a nice luxury to have a primary punt/kick returner on your team.

If Johnson can be that guy like Hixon was for us then great but Davis does have a bit of history with fumbling punt returns, so that will be something to keep an eye on this summer.

I'm actually still good with Bradshaw returning punts for now, and seeing what got in some of our other players for kick-offs.
Just keep Moss and Ware out of the equation.

I wouldn't mind seeing Chad Jones get a shot at returning punts.
