Packers Re-Sign Tyler Davis

The Green Bay Packers first free agent signing Monday was a familiar face. They brought back backup tight end and key special teams player Tyler Davis. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Davis (torn ACL) is expected to be ready by training camp if not before. This gives head coach Matt LaFleur a key blocking tight end back and special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia an important piece of his unit back.

Davis, a former sixth-round pick in 2020, found a home with the Packers in 2021 as a quality role player on both offense and special teams. The 6-4, 250-pound tight end has eight career receptions for 61 yards. Additionally, he has 15 career tackles via special teams. He played in 14 games in 2021 and all 17 in 2022.

At the beginning of 2023, Davis tore his ACL in a preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was placed on season-ending injured reserve on August 21st.

Again, the report is that the former UConn and Georgia Tech star is on track to be ready for training camp this Summer. He will be back in Green Bay with second-year tight ends Tucker Kraft, Luke Musgrave, and Ben Sims. Look for Davis to be back protecting the punter, as well as locking up the edge on field goal attempts. Offensively, he should have a big role in the running game, as well.

2020 third-round pick and current free agent Josiah Deguara is still a free agent, and it remains to be seen whether or not he will be brought back to play in Green Bay.
