Davis (5’10”, 180) makes his way to the Lions after a short stint with the Miami Dolphins in 2016 preceded by a very successful two-year run in Germany. The Missouri-Valley grad saw action on both sides of the ball and earned league MVP honours in 2015 with the Kiel Hurricanes after tallying 94 receptions for 1,733 yards and 24 touchdowns along with six interceptions as a defensive back.

The Lions will invite approximately 40 players to take part in a three-day mini-camp at their Surrey practice facility from April 26-28.
