Jamin Davis To Take Edge-Rusher Reps Ahead Of Contract Year

Washington Commanders linebacker Jamin Davis hasn't had the impact the organization hoped for when he was selected with the No. 19 pick of the 2021 NFL draft out of Kentucky. He's appeared in 45 games over the last three seasons, collecting 269 tackles, seven sacks, two forced fumbles, one interception, six pass deflections, and 21.5 run stuffs. However, new head coach Dan Quinn is likely to start Frankie Luvu and Bobby Wagner on the inside in 2024, so Davis is getting the chance to earn playing time on the edge. "We're trying to really push him specifically on the versatility. So you'll see him working some with the defensive line, you'll see him working with [pass rush specialist] Ryan Kerrigan on the side, and we're adding parts to his game that maybe we didn't use and we're certainly trying to explore that." Davis is a talented player with physical tools, so there's a chance he could become a solid rotational pass rusher in what should be a much improved Washington defense this season. For now, Dante Fowler Jr., Dorance Armstrong, and Clelin Ferrell are likely the top three edge rushers on the depth chart. Heading into a contract year, Davis will have to show some upside to become an attractive free agent for the 2025 offseason.

Commanders Declining Fifth-Year Option On Jamin Davis

The Washington Commanders are declining the fifth-year contract option of linebacker Jamin Davis, according to a source. It's been heading this way for on and off-field reasons. The plan in 2024 is to have the athletically gifted Davis become a "hybrid" defender, which should translate to less pass coverage and more attempts to rush the quarterback. Davis played his rookie season in 2021 at Mike linebacker before moving to the off-ball role in the team's 4-2-5 base defense. According to Pro Football Focus, he tied for the highest yards per catch allowed (12.1) last year and ranked fourth-worst in average depth of target (5.5) because of his limited coverage instincts. The 25-year-old former 19th overall pick out of Kentucky has just seven sacks in his three seasons, but he could be more productive in that category if he's rushing the passer more in 2024.

Commanders Place Jamin Davis On Injured Reserve

The Washington Commanders placed linebacker Jamin Davis (shoulder) on Injured Reserve on Thursday and signed defensive end Joshua Pryor from the practice squad to the active 53-man roster in a corresponding move. Davis hurt his shoulder in the Week 13 loss to the Miami Dolphins and will now have season-ending surgery. The 25-year-old former first-rounder is ranked as the No. 24 fantasy linebacker in IDP leagues thanks to 89 total tackles (50 solo), three sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles in his 13 games played in his third year in the NFL. It's a big loss for a Commanders defense that is short on playmakers down the stretch in 2023. Fantasy managers should be avoiding their defense/special teams unit at all costs in Week 15 as they face the Los Angeles Rams.

Appeal Date Set For Jamin Davis

Washington Commanders linebacker Jamin Davis' reckless-driving case was moved to a jury trial on March 4 of next year. It means that Davis will not be suspended before the 2024 NFL season. The 24-year-old former first-round selection in 2021 out of Kentucky has underwhelmed so far in his first two NFL seasons, compiling 180 tackles (116 solo), four sacks, 12 tackles for loss, seven QB hits and two fumble recoveries in 32 games (23 starts) for the Commanders. However, he remains in a starting role for a pretty formidable Washington defense and is at least worth considering for linebacker depth in IDP fantasy formats.

Jamin Davis Appears In Court Monday

Washington Commanders linebacker Jamin Davis was in court on Monday to appeal a reckless driving conviction that sentenced him to 30 days in jail, a suspended license and a fine. Judge Stephen E. Sincavage rejected a plea agreement from Davis that would have resulted in no more than eight days of active incarceration. The 24-year-old is facing a Class 1 misdemeanor that is punishable with up to 12 months in jail in Virginia for going 114 mph in a 45 mph zone. The former first-rounder in 2021 had 104 total tackles (68 solo), nine tackles for loss, five QB hits, three sacks and two fumble recoveries in 16 games (15 starts) in his second NFL season in 2022. As long as Davis isn't suspended by the league, he should be an option on IDP benches to start the 2023 season.

Jamin Davis Likely To Return For Training Camp

Washington Commanders linebacker Jamin Davis (knee) sat out the offseason program following a knee procedure after rest and rehab weren't enough to offset his discomfort. There is no timetable for his return to practice, but the 2021 first-rounder will likely be back for training camp at the end of July. Davis ended last season on Injured Reserve after injuring his knee in Week 17, but the 24-year-old should be ready to go for the start of the 2023 regular season, barring a setback in training camp. He put himself on the IDP map in fantasy leagues in his second season in the NFL by recording 104 tackles (68 solo), three sacks, nine tackles for loss, five QB hits and two fumble recoveries in 16 games (15 starts).

Jamin Davis Had Clean-Up Procedure On Knee

Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said that linebacker Jamin Davis (knee) had a clean-up procedure on his knee earlier in the offseason and will only take part in walkthroughs at organized team activities this week. Davis suffered a knee injury in Week 17 last year against the Dallas Cowboys and ended the 2022 campaign on Injured Reserve as a result. The 24-year-old wrapped up his second NFL season with 104 tackles (68 solo), three sacks, nine tackles for loss, five QB hits and two fumble recoveries in 16 games (15 starts). Barring a setback with his knee, the team will be hoping that Davis will be ready to go for training camp at the end of July.

Washington Signs First-Rounder Jamin Davis, Rest Of Picks

The Washington Football Team signed all 10 of their 2021 NFL draft picks to their rookie contracts, including first-round linebacker Jamin Davis. Davis was taken at No. 19 overall out of Kentucky after a junior season in which he recorded 102 tackles and three interceptions in 10 games. He'll join an already nasty defense in D.C. after impressing during his school's Pro Day in the pre-draft process. Davis can play in the box but also excels in pass coverage. The 6-foot-3, 234-pounder has excellent athleticism all across the field and should earn the right to start right away in his rookie season. Davis may not be a beast right out of the gates in Washington, but he has extremely high long-term upside.

Washington Drafts Jamin Davis With First-Round Pick

The Washington Football Team selected Kentucky linebacker Jamin Davis with the No. 19 overall pick in the first round of the 2021 draft on Thursday night. One huge season in college secured his spot in the first round this year. He's consistent, tough, smart and has plenty of leadership qualities. Davis has really long arms, and that's translated to plenty of tackles. He has the athleticism to go sideline to sideline, and Davis will seriously upgrade Washington's linebacking corps. Davis will need to improve his downhill play in the running game and how he diagnoses plays on the fly, but his athleticism should be enough to make up the difference. He has the potential to stick with bigger tight ends in coverage as well.
