Davis is leaving New York for a new adventure in Cleveland

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Demario Davis has officially signed a 2 year contract with the Cleveland Browns for $8 million, leaving the Jets after four years. The Jets drafted Davis in the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Davis became a starter in 2013, and spent the last three years as a starting inside linebacker before losing considerable playing time towards the end of 2015 due to poor play.

It was reported that the Jets had interest in bringing Davis back in 2016, but how serious that interest was remains unknown. I always liked Davis, but he was a player with a lot of limitations, especially playing out in space. Erin Henderson became the player to partner Harris towards the end of the 2015 season and proved to be the more capable player.

During his 4 year career with the Jets he totalled 349 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 8 pass defenses and 1 interception.

Davis has always been a stand up guy, a really good role model in the community and I wish him nothing but the best for the new chapter in his life.
