Davis was a third-round pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2008 NFL draft. He was moved to outside linebacker in the Steelers' 3-4 system but had trouble making the transition. He didn't play a snap for the Steelers in his rookie season and was released from the team before the 2009 season. He has spent time on the Patriots, Broncos and 49ers' practice squad and a short period of time on the Raiders' active roster in the time since. 

Davis will now help the Bengals players get prepared to make a playoff run through the last six games of the season.
