Bengals sign former Titans wide receiver Chris Davis

New, comments

The Bengals pursuit for wide receivers isn't over. In fact, it appears since the signing of Matt Jones that the team will gladly stock the position and have an epic battle for a roster once training camp kicks off. The Antonio Bryant signing was merely to upgrade the talent of players that would take the bulk of the snaps during the game. The rest are roster depth guys that will gladiator-it out.

And there's another.

The Bengals signed former Tennessee Titan wide receiver Chris Davis on Friday, writes Joe Reedy.

Davis, a former Florida State Seminole, has spent two years in the league, playing 17 total games and recording seven career receptions for 69 yards receiving and no touchdowns. Davis finished his college career as the fifth all-time receiver (134 receptions) in Florida State history, and falling 20 yards short of Anquan Boldin's career receiving yards in college.

More on Davis from Geoff Hobson.

Davis (5-10, 181) was a fourth-round Tennessee draft choice in 2007, and in two seasons (2007-08) with the Titans, he played in 17 games plus two postseason games as a receiver and kick returner. He averaged 9.1 yards on 33 punt returns, 26.0 yards on six kickoff returns and had seven receptions for 69 yards. He also had two special teams fumble recoveries.

Davis was waived by Tennessee, with an injury settlement, on Aug. 28 of last year,  and he was not with an NFL team during the 2009 regular season.

Davis is the ninth receiver on the team's roster.

Oh, and yes, Davis was charged with a DUI in August of 2009.

Tennessee Titans receiver Chris Davis has been charged with DUI after being stopped by police early Friday for speeding in downtown Nashville.

The arrest report stated when the officer pulled over Davis' car, the player smelled of alcohol and his eyes were watery. Davis consented to a breath alcohol test, which registered 0.11. The level of intoxication in Tennessee is 0.08.

At least we know every thing is right in the world.
