The Denver Broncos have signed Davis as they continue to revamp their defense.|||||||
Davis was signed Monday. He fits in with the Broncos' plans to convert to a 3-4 defense since he played in a similar scheme with Cleveland.

They've re-tooled their secondary, bringing in Andre Goodman, Brian Dawkins and Renaldo Hill.
Davis was inactive for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay with a concussion. Davis got hurt in last week's game in Baltimore and did not practice this week. He leads the club with 133 tackles and had not missed a game this season.|||||||
