2. Mike Davis, RB, Ravens
The Ravens signed Mike Davis this offseason to serve as reliable, veteran depth at a position that desperately needed it entering the 2022 season. With J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards recovering from injury, it made sense for the Ravens to bring in another experienced body.
In fact, Davis worked as the team’s RB1 for most of the summer with Dobbins and Edwards sidelined. He played a sizable depth role for the team over the first two weeks of the season, but the addition of Kenyan Drake certainly ate into his snaps.
In many ways, Drake has been the player the Ravens hoped Davis would be. He’s taken on the role of a reliable, experienced veteran in the team’s backfield.
As such, Davis has seen his role diminish to the point where he’s been a healthy scratch in each of the last two weeks. With Edwards, Drake, and Justice Hill manning the backfield until Dobbins returns, the Ravens don’t really need Davis.
Edwards’ hamstring injury is not considered serious, and if he’s good to play this Monday against the New Orleans Saints, there’s no reason the team can’t look to move Davis at the deadline.
It’s highly unlikely they’d be able to get anything significant for him, but even a Day 3 pick swap could be worth it considering his overall lack of a role.
Davis is surplus at a position the Ravens could look to make an addition. He just isn’t needed on the roster.
