Seahawks signed QB Austin Davis.
QB Jake Heaps was waived in a corresponding roster move. It officially closes the door on the Seahawks' pursuit of Colin Kaepernick, which coach Pete Carroll had already said was dead. The sides could still re-start talks at a later date. Davis isn't exactly a surefire fit, though he figures to instantly slide in as the No. 2 quarterback ahead of arrest-prone Trevone Boykin. Davis made zero 2016 appearances, but attempted 94 passes for the 2015 Browns. Jun 5 - 1:21 PM

Free agent QB Austin Davis is visiting the Seahawks.

Davis is joining fellow free agent Colin Kaepernick on the visit. The Seahawks are trying to find a backup to Russell Wilson after Trevone Boykin's latest arrest. Davis was with the Broncos last summer as a camp arm.
May 24 - 11:21 AM

Broncos declared QB Austin Davis, WR Kalif Raymond, DB Lorenzo Doss, ILB Brandon Marshall, DE Vontarrius Dora, OL Connor McGovern and OL Ty Sambrailo inactive for Week 15 against the Patriots.

Versatile lineman Sambrailo is the only notable name.

Broncos signed QB Austin Davis.

Davis, a 27-year-old journeyman, will "mentor" Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch. The odds are against him making it all 17 weeks on the 53-man roster.

ESPN’s Todd Archer reports the Cowboys will not sign free agent QB Austin Davis.

The Cowboys are looking for an experienced quarterback to backup Dak Prescott while Tony Romo (back) is out, but Davis apparently will not be the guy. Dallas could look to the wire after final cuts, or they could attempt to trade for a lower-tier backup like the Chiefs’ Aaron Murray. Jameill Showers is the Cowboys’ only other healthy quarterback on the roster.

Free agent QB Austin Davis is visiting the Cowboys on Wednesday.

The Cowboys need a new No. 2 behind Dak Prescott, but Davis is unlikely to be the answer. The Cowboys probably want/need an extra arm for Thursday's preseason finale.

Browns waived/released QB Austin Davis, DL Nick Hayden, DB Sean Baker, WR Josh Boyce, WR Ed Eagan, FB Robert Hughes, TE David Reeves, OL Cory Tucker, TE E.J. Bibbs, and K Travis Coons.

They also sent RB Glenn Winston (shoulder) and DL Nile Lawrence-Stample (shoulder) to injured reserve. Cleveland has one more move to make before tomorrow's deadline. Davis was an expected cut, but it is a reminder the team ridiculously gave him a three-year contract with a $500,000 signing bonus and $600,000 guaranteed last September. Barely more than a camp arm, he might not find a new home right away. With Coons cut, Patrick Murray has won the kicking competition.

Browns QB Austin Davis left Friday night's preseason opener with a concussion.

He went 4-of-9 passing for 32 yards and nine yards rushing before exiting. There were rumors the Browns wanted to try to showcase Davis for a trade in this game, but he didn't put many good things on tape before leaving and giving way to rookie Cody Kessler. Barring an increasingly-unlikely Josh McCown trade, Davis probably isn't going to make the Browns' 53-man roster.

Austin Davis completed 24-of-46 passes for 240 yards and two interceptions in the Browns' 28-12, Week 17 loss to the Steelers.

He also lost a fumble in the fourth quarter which allowed Pittsburgh to score the game-clinching touchdown. Davis managed to "lead" the Browns to 15 points and zero touchdowns in two starts this season. Cleveland will have several decisions to make when it comes to the quarterback position, but one of their primary goals should be to ensure Davis does not start any more games in 2016. Davis signed a two-year extension in September, ensuring he will be back as a backup next season.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Austin Davis will start Week 17 against the Steelers.

Johnny Manziel will not play after being placed in the concussion protocol Wednesday. Davis "led" the offense to just three points in his only other start of the season Week 13 against the Bengals. This offense is a complete fade even in a decent matchup.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 10:55:00 AM

Austin Davis completed 25-of-38 passes for 231 yards and an interception in the Browns' Week 13 loss to the Bengals.

He took three sacks and rushed three times for four yards. Davis was completely ineffective, engineering zero touchdown drives in a 37-3 defeat. Look for coach Mike Pettine to seriously consider letting Johnny Manziel finish out the season at quarterback during the upcoming week.

The Browns have named Austin Davis their starting quarterback for Week 13 against the Bengals.

"Austin took advantage of his opportunity on Monday night. He was prepared, played well and put us in position to win," Pettine said. "He’s been great in the quarterback room all season and he has earned the right to start on Sunday. We expect him to play well." Davis relieved Josh McCown (collarbone) this past Monday night, and completed 7-of-10 passes for 77 yards and a 42-yard touchdown to Travis Benjamin. Davis started eight games for the Rams last season, going 3-5 with a 63.4 completion percentage, 12:9 TD:INT ratio, and 7.0 YPA average. He really struggled under pressure, however, and took a whopping 29 sacks. Johnny Manziel will be the No. 2 quarterback Sunday and will likely make starts before the season is over.

Austin Davis completed 7-of-10 passes for 77 yards and one touchdown in relief of Josh McCown (shoulder) in the Browns' Week 12 loss to the Ravens on Monday night.

Davis came into the game with just over nine minutes to go and the Browns trailing 27-20. He looked rusty his first few passes, but dialed up a deep ball to Travis Benjamin down the middle, hitting his receiver in stride for a 42-yard touchdown to tie the game. The Browns got the ball back at the Ravens' 46-yard line with just under a minute to go. Davis completed his first pass to Brian Hartline, but took nearly 30 seconds to run the next play, which he scramble to the 32-yard line and slid in bounds to keep the clock running, forcing the Browns to use a timeout. They ran it for no gain on the next play, used their final timeout, and attempted a 51-yard field goal that was blocked and returned for the game-winning touchdown. With McCown maybe done for the season, it's unclear if Davis or Johnny Manziel will get the start Week 13 against the Bengals.

Browns signed QB Austin Davis to a two-year, $4.173 million extension through 2017.

Davis is the Browns' No. 3 quarterback and a weekly inactive. It's pretty odd to see Cleveland dishing out over $2 million a year to a player they hope never has to see the field. Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel are signed through 2017. There's probably little guaranteed money, and this lowers Davis' 2015 salary.
Wed, Sep 30, 2015 08:59:00 AM

Browns signed QB Austin Davis.

Davis was waived by the Rams at final cuts. He will be insurance against backup QB Johnny Manziel's sore elbow.
