Falcons release running back Mike Davis

The Atlanta Falcons have released veteran running back Mike Davis, Jordan Schultz reports.

What It Means:

Davis spent the 2021 season with the Falcons as the team's primary running back, but lost out on work to teammate Cordarelle Patterson as the former kick returning specialist made waves at the position. The Falcons drafted former BYU running back Tyler Allgeier in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, but could still sign another veteran to round out their backfield before the season begins.

Davis had his work cut out for him behind the Falcons' struggling offensive line last season, but he still managed to grind out 503 rushing yards and 3 rushing scores on 138 carries, while contributing 259 yards and another score one 44 receptions. The veteran offers tackle-breaking chops and pass catching abilities and could end up with another team before too long.
