The Seattle Seahawks had the best rushing offense in football last season. When they try to repeat this year, they'll be doing it with a different backfield.
The Bears, on the other hand, made a massive move at the expense of Seattle.
Chicago has signed Mike Davis, per insider Ian Rapoport.
Davis had to split time with Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny for the Hawks, but thrived when he got an opportunity to play. He finished with 514 yards on 4.6 yards per carry with five total touchdowns. He was one of the most efficient running backs in the division
I've been a big fan of Mike Davis since his days at South Carolina. He's battled injuries, but if he can stay healthy? Dude has a great combination of traits and can thrive in Nagy's offense. This could be another stroke of genius by Ryan Pace. #Bears— Bryan Perez (@BryanPerezNFL) March 11, 2019
This move is big for the Bears future, in that it likely means they're moving on from Jordan Howard. Chicago did show interest in trading him, and now essentially have to move on thanks to the arrival of Davis. They already have Tarik Cohen as the main guy, which means Howard could be gone sooner rather than later.
Just another wrinkle in the ever-changing free agency picture.
