49ers sign CB Will Davis to a one-year deal

Jun 1, 2017 at 1:11 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that they have signed cornerback Will Davis to a one-year deal. To make room for Davis on the roster, the team has waived wide receiver Rashad Ross.

Davis was originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He spent two years with Miami, appearing in 15 games and recording 20 tackles and three passes defensed. Davis also had five tackles on special teams during that time span. He was traded to the Baltimore Ravens on September 21, 2015. In two seasons with Baltimore, Davis appeared in just five games and had five tackles, two passes defenses, and an interception.

Davis' 2015 season was cut short by a torn ACL that was suffered that October, which was less than a month after his arrival in Baltimore. He finished the season on the Ravens' injured reserve list. It was the second-straight season that was cut short for Davis with an ACL injury. He previously suffered the same injury in November of 2014 with Miami.

Davis was waived by the Ravens on November 4, 2016. He has a passion for photography and tours each host city prior to road games in order to snap some photos.

Ross was originally signed by the 49ers to a reserve/future contract on January 19th.

The San Francisco 49ers announced they have re-signed linebacker Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles to a one-year deal. They opted not to tender the defender, initially a restricted free agent. That allowed allowing Flannigan-Fowles to become an unrestricted free agent and re-sign with the Niners on what we can presume is a more team-friendly deal. San Francisco signed Flannigan-Fowles (6-2, 223) as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona in 2019. He registered 22 tackles, a tackle for a loss, a sack, and a quarterback hit through 17 game appearances with the 49ers last season, per Pro
