Davis, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2001 draft out of Texas, spent his first six seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. He played guard for the first four seasons and switched to left tackle in 2004. He started 91 games for the Cardinals, including all 16 last season, but never became the overpowering Pro Bowl-level player the team envisioned.

Davis was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2001 draft. He has started 91 games for the Cardinals, but hasn't lived up to expectations.|||||||
