A familiar face has found his way back to the windy city. WR Rashied Davis, who signed with NFC North rival Detroit last off-season has reportedly signed with the Chicago Bears today.
Chicago Tribune reporter Vaughn McClure first reported the move Monday afternoon.
He was let go last off-season after the Bears opted to sign WR Sam Hurd. That turned out to be a big mistake after what happened to Hurd last season.
Davis was always a likable player for the Bears. He helped on special teams in any way he could as a blocker as well as a returner. He was always a dependable receiver as well, making big catches when the team needed him most.
In six seasons in Chicago, the 33-year old appeared in 92 games making 15 starts. He reeled in 88 balls for 1,032 yards and five touchdowns.
He will battle second-year receiver Dane Sanzenbacher, who has yet to prove his worth on special teams for what looks to be the sixth receiver spot.
Glad to see a familiar face back in Chicago. He should be one of the better sixth receivers in the league if he is able to secure a roster spot.
Welcome back Rashied Davis.
