Chargers CB Michael Davis has officially signed his second round RFA tender. He’ll make close to $3.3M this season as part of a loaded Chargers secondary.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) April 9, 2020
Davis is coming off his best season as a professional after starting 12 games in 2019. He totaled 39 tackles, nine pass breakups, and the first two interceptions of his young career.
The notable thing about this news is the realization that $3.3 million is not “ride the bench” money. That is money that you pay to someone who’s going to play and play a lot. This only furthers the notion that Davis will stay outside opposite Casey Hayward while the rest of the secondary will be made up of Chris Harris, Desmond King, and potentially a draft pick on day two or three.
With Nasir Adderley officially changing his number from 32 to 24, the conspiracy theorists have come out to suggest that Adderley may be moving to cornerback in 2020 which was the position he played during his first two seasons at Delaware.
