However, just 150 minutes later, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Davis was in fact being cut by Gang Green and is being replaced by fellow journeyman running back C.J. Spiller.
Spiller played in 13 games in New Orleans last season, only to be released immediately following Week 1. Spiller then signed with the Seahawks ahead of their Week 4 matchup against, yep, the Jets. In three games in Seattle, Spiller compiled just 52 total yards on eight touches. He was cut by the Seahawks six days ago.
The league's running back carousel is a curious beast that plays with the emotions of everyone involved. We wish Davis the best in his search for a long-term landing spot.
