Name: C.J. Davis
Pos: Guard
Ht, Wt: 6’2″, 308
Age: 25
Exp: 3
College: Pittsburgh

C.J. Davis was an undrafted rookie John Fox brought to Carolina in 2009, and after signing a reserve/future contract with the Broncos following the 2011 season, Fox’s investment in Davis continues. Davis spent two seasons with the Panthers, in a manner of speaking, but successive injuries kept him from reaching his potential. He was placed on injured reserve his rookie season out of training camp (ankle), then waived/injured a year later out of training camp again (concussion). Later he was signed to the practice squad, then the active roster, and ultimately played in seven games in 2010 (reserve guard and special teams). In 2011 he was waived/injured by the Panthers again out of camp (right knee) and spent the season out of football.

Analysis: Davis offers versatility in that he can play center in a pinch, and his injuries only occurred at the professional level — he had started in over 40 games at left guard at Pittsburgh and was a first-team All-Big East conference selection as a senior. He has good quickness and instincts, he just hasn’t had the opportunity to show them off at the pro level.

Contract Status: Signed a reserve/future contract through 2012.

2012 Outlook: Roster bubble. Davis is a camp body who will have to return to 2008 (collegiate) form to break the roster.

As always, we invite you, the readers, to participate. Has Harris’s ship sailed in Denver, or are you glad the Broncos are giving him another training camp to make his NFL comeback?
