I bashed Davis in the past.  Mostly for making bad decisions.  However warmed up to him quite a bit this year.  He was coming on as a receiver and has been solid in return duties.  Kind of mixed on this one hope it doesn't blow up in our face.  If we did indeed land a 6th I guess it's ok.  Still not a move I would have made.  But Gute knows what he is doing so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.  Hope either Shepard (who did look pretty good) or the new kid work out.

Told everybody he has value.  Just not to us.  

See, I thought he should have been cut last year. He didn't fit in MM's offense.  Then we got a taste how he fit in the new offense in the preseason and I thought he was a really nice complimentary piece between special teams, vertical routes, and end-arounds.  

I'm a bit surprised to be honest.

I think he was a decent punt returner he hasn't had much playing time the last two years due to his injuries which hurt. I think he offered little else though as he has trouble with press. I thought Shephard beat him out to be honest and he is a better slot.

We are churning the bottom of the roster that much I love. TT did it too but didn't seem to successful later in his career with hits. To me Shepard is a better slot and can likely perform just as well in return duties as Davis. Bringing in the kid from KC is just having a look at some raw speed and return open field stuff. He's a possible toy for MLF and or our ST coach whatever his name is.

FWIW Tremon Smith returned punts at Central Arkansas. Expect him to compete with Sheppard there and take over the KR duties. 

He returned 33 kicks last year for the Chiefs btw. 

Wikipedia says he was even the "all rookie returner"

Davis had the second most important reception in the Bears game and it's because the Bears respected his speed. I believe even Rodgers pointed that out. 

One play in one game over how many years here? Look I get it, it helped week 1. But it wasn’t his speed... they played zone that play and Davis found the soft spot.

My point is how often is he even on the field? He is at best the 4th Wide out on this team.

We aren’t losing speed or production or anything because his impact is minimal on this team. Your speed is MVS... he out performed Davis.

Was a really good returner and a good but not great gunner for us, but this is what you do when your role players go into second deals.

Not one legitimate muff in his entire career returning punts for the Packers. How is anybody saying anything bad about Davis' returning career for us?

Good chance we miss his dependability at some point this year.

Didn't Hill run 4.3 flat or some ****? 

Only when the cops were chasing him for breaking his son's arm.
