The Browns made an interesting roster move today, waiving RB James Davis. The team claimed RB Thomas Clayton off waivers from the Patriots.
Davis was a 6th round pick back in 2009, and this season in four games rushed four times for 9 yards. All four of the carries came in a week three loss in Baltimore.
Back when he was drafted back in 2009, many in the organization felt he had a chance to be a contributor to the club. Guess not.
At the time, GM George Kokinis said he liked Davis’ production in college, including that he is Clemson’s all-time leader with 47 rushing touchdowns – 21 in his last two seasons. He also liked his 4.60-second speed in the 40-yard dash.
“At that point in the draft you take a shot on someone that has that kind of speed,” Kokinis said. “He has a lot of upside.”
Now he’s like just another draft pick of the Browns looking for work.
