According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the New England Patriots signed former Pittsburgh Steelers security service Sean Davis to their training roster on Wednesday.
The Patriots had Davis for training on Tuesday. Apparently they liked what they saw and brought the 27-year-old to join the training team. Davis could already be activated and raised in the game against the Dallas Cowboys next weekend.
Can Davis Help the Patriots Pass and Run Defense?
Stampede Blue’s Zach Hicks gave this assessment of Davis’ strengths before signing with the Indianapolis Colts earlier this year:
Davis’ size and physicality will likely appeal to the patriots who can probably envision using it to cover tight ends. Davis was notoriously beaten and ridiculed by former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski in a similar situation in 2017, but Gronk has made the most of many good players.
In today’s NFL, the practice team is an ever changing and often very valuable aspect of a franchise. In case you’re wondering what other players are with Davis on the Patriots training team?
Here is a look at all 16 players listed as members of the Practice Team on Patriots.com.
We’ll see if more players from this list are called up for Sunday’s meeting with the Dallas Cowboys.
