On Saturday morning news broke that the Chicago Bears are waiving running back Mike Davis.
The #Bears are waiving RB Mike Davis, one of their free agent signings this past spring, source said. They gave him $6M over 2 years, but cut him after just 11 carries in part because of how it helps them get a comp pick. He’ll be attractive on the waiver wire.

Upon the news breaking, Davis, who spent time with Darrell Bevell in Seattle, was immediately linked to the Detroit Lions.
Keep an eye on the Lions with Davis. They liked him 2 years ago as an RFA https://t.co/fw9p7GFBqT

The Lions need a RB and as Dave Birkett noted, they showed interest in Davis a couple of years ago when he was a restricted free agent.
