On Thursday, the Seahawks re-signed Mike Davis, the 25-year-old running back who showed promise for Seattle through the second half of the 2017 regular season.
Promoted off the Seahawks’ practice squad last November, Davis finished the year as Seattle’s most productive running back, racking up 240 yards on 68 carries (3.5-yard average) through six games played, all of which he started. A former fourth-round draft pick in 2015 out of the University of South Carolina, Davis set career-highs in single-game rushing attempts (16 vs Philadelphia) and single-game rushing yards (66 at Jacksonville) in 2017 with the Seahawks and also accounted for the Seahawks’ longest rush of the season when he recorded a career-high 33-yard gain against the Arizona Cardinals on New Year’s Eve.
Seattle originally acquired Davis in May 2017 off waivers from the 49ers. Prior to joining the Seahawks, Davis spent two seasons in San Francisco, where he played in 14 games, including one start, and carried the football 54 times for 108 yards and a touchdown, adding 10 catches for 63 yards.
