The Lions are not expected to pick up his fifth-year option, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. That would open the door for Davis to hit free agency after the season.
Davis has been serviceable at times over his first three seasons in Detroit. The middle linebacker tallied a carer-high 100 tackles and six sacks in 2018. His numbers and performance dipped in 2019, however, while losing five games to injury. Davis would finish with 63 tackles, two sacks and three forced fumbles.
