    Jarrad Davis Departs Detroit for New York Giants

    Jarrad Davis, a former first-round pick and linebacker for the Detroit Lions, has agreed to sign with the New York Giants. He could make his Giants debut Sunday against the Colts.

    Why it matters

    • Davis left the Lions for the New York Jets last season but returned to Detroit after injuries hampered his time with the Jets.
    • He did not make the team out of training camp this year but was added to the practice squad and given extra money to stay with the team.
    • While on the practice squad, Davis served as a mentor to rookie Malcolm Rodriguez and made some meaningful contributions in the Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears, batting down a pass and recording two tackles.

    The Big Picture

    According to the team, the linebacker has agreed to sign with the New York Giants. He was signed off Detroit’s practice squad.

    He didn’t make the team out of training camp but was valued enough by the coaching staff that he was given extra money to sign with the team’s practice squad. The linebacker has been a good fit this season, especially while working as a mentor for rookie Malcolm Rodriguez. Davis made meaningful contributions when elevated for the Week 10 game in Chicago. He batted down a Justin Fields pass on one of his first snaps and finished with two tackles. Davis also played against the Vikings and Jets this month, which exhausted his availability to be elevated off the practice squad. He would have to sign with the 53-man roster to be eligible to play again. He chose to go with the Giants instead when that opportunity did not come.
