Packers Should Sign Former Return Man Trevor Davis After Release From Raiders

The Green Bay Packers got a much needed bounce-back win vs. the New York Giants on Sunday. However, there are just four weeks left in the NFL regular season, and there are still areas Green Bay needs to improve upon as the postseason quickly approaches.

Green Bay has been searching for a solid return specialist most of this season, and one of their former players just became available after being waived by the Oakland Raiders on Monday.

Trevor Davis has 4.4 speed and would be a solid late-season addition if the Pack are interested. He could also provide them with a speedy playmaker on offense. At the very least, Matt LaFleur should kick the tires on him.

The Pack let go of Tremon Smith on Monday, who had been handling their return duties for the past month and change.

A reunion between Davis and Green Bay would make a lot of sense.

The Packers traded the fourth-year player out of California to the Raiders earlier this season. They now have a chance to recoup him for next to nothing.
