I was hoping to see a corner or 2 added to the roster. Wishful hoping!!!
No secondary players???
Davis was really really good at USF. I’m not sure why some of those super talented USF offensive players (not that there have been a ton) haven’t translated to the NFL but here’s hoping that Davis can make the team at some point and help out, he seems to have the tools.
