Bears released DE Chauncey Davis.
Davis reportedly put together a strong camp at age 29, but the Bears are going young along the defensive line. It looks like both Corey Wootton and Cheta Ozougwu are sticking. Fri, Aug 31, 2012 02:37:00 PM

Bears signed DE Chauncey Davis, formerly of the Falcons.

The long-time Falcon and reserve pass rusher was one of Atlanta's final cuts. He appeared in all 16 games a season ago, tallying 24 tackles, a sack and an interception. Davis worked out for the Patriots and Lions before being signed by the Bears.

Falcons released DE Chauncey Davis.

It's a cost-cutting move. Davis is still only 28, but was due $3 million and the Falcons are banking on Lawrence Sidbury to take the next step as a No. 4 end. It will be interesting to see if they also keep seventh-round pick Cliff Matthews, who flashed in camp. Davis will resurface within the next two weeks.

Falcons agreed to terms with DE Chauncey Davis on a four-year, $14 million contract.

He's expected to receive $8 million over the first two seasons. Davis, a rotational end, often replaces LE Jamaal Anderson in run situations, with Anderson kicking inside to tackle. Davis is coming off a career-high four-sack season. He also fell on three fumbles and made 38 tackles, another personal best.

The player rep for DE Chauncey Davis indicated that his client plans to test the free agent market.

"He wants to be a starter," said the agent. "He’s ready to take his career to that next level." Davis isn't much of a pass rusher, but he's only 26 and could get a shot to be an every-down player in a 4-3 defense elsewhere.

Falcons signed restricted free agent DE Chauncey Davis and P Michael Koenen to one-year contracts.

Davis will get $927,000 in 2008, while Koenen will make $1.417 million. A Falcons beat writer suggested last week that Davis might be in the running to start at left end in 2008, but he's never been a pressure player with only four sacks through three pro seasons. Unless Jamaal Anderson really struggles in training camp, that position probably won't be up for grabs.

Falcons beat reporter Orlando D. Ledbetter suggests that Chauncey Davis will be given a shot to start at left defensive end this year.

He'd challenge Jamaal Anderson there. Anderson had no sacks in 16 starts as a rookie. Davis is potent vs. the run, but the fact that the new Falcons regime only gave him a low tender in restricted free agency says something.

Falcons DL Chauncey Davis has settled in as the team's third end.

Davis is behind rookie Jamaal Anderson on the left side. The 2005 fourth-round pick will see action during the season as a situational run stopper.

Chauncey Davis is the leading candidate to start at left end for the Falcons with Patrick Kerney having signed a six-year contract with Seattle.

Davis has experience starting, and did so in 2006 when John Abraham went down with a groin injury, but had just one sack. Atlanta will look at defensive ends like Nebraska's Adam Carriker on the first day of the draft.

Falcons DE Chauncey Davis will start while John Abraham (groin) is out.

Abraham could miss up to a month. Davis has notched ten tackles and a sack while playing primarily on rushing downs this season.

If RE John Abraham (questionable, groin) misses Week 2, backup DE Chauncey Davis would likely start in his place.

Davis could be worth a spot start against Tampa Bay's banged-up offensive line, especially if he lines up across from OT Kenyatta Walker.
Fri, Sep 15, 2006 08:30:00 AM

Falcons signed DL Chauncey Davis, a fourth-round pick, to a three-year, $1.2 million contract.

The deal included a $300,000 signing bonus. He could be in the mix for playing time while Brady Smith recovers from injury.
