New York Jets Officially Sign LB Demario Davis, Their 3rd-Round Pick in the 2012 NFL Draft
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but the deal is expected to be a four-year contract for the 23-year-old Davis, who will likely spend his rookie season on special teams and see some snaps on defense as well.
A versatile player capable of playing inside and outside linebacker positions, Davis will be expected to back up starting inside linebackers Bart Scott and David Harris, and he could potentially be Scott’s heir apparent someday.
Davis is one of the last Jets 2012 draft picks to sign, the seventh member of their eight-player draft class to officially ink a contract.
Their top pick, defensive end Quinton Coples, signed a four-year deal and has been making plays in OTAs on a regular basis thus far.
With Davis now officially in the fold as well, that leaves seventh-round wide receiver Jordan White as the only unsigned player in the 2012 Jets draft class.
It’ll be interesting to see what kind of impact Demario Davis will have as a rookie. He is a gifted physical specimen with strong natural leadership skills. The Jets are hoping he’ll have a bright future in Green and White.
