Veteran RB Mike Davis retires

Mike Davis, who suited up as a running back for six teams across eight NFL seasons, announced his retirement on Monday.

Davis, who did not play in 2023, took to social media with a message of gratitude on his 31st birthday.

“As I turn 31 today, I sit back and look on my NFL career and how thankful I am to be apart of a brotherhood,” he wrote. “This game has allowed me to make a lot of friends and memories. I’m grateful for every organization in NFL. With that being said I’m retiring!”
