The Baltimore Ravens and former Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis have agreed to a one-year deal, the club announced Tuesday.

Atlanta released Davis last week after one season. He averaged just 3.6 yards per carry for 503 yards over 17 games in his lone year with the Falcons. He trailed the more dynamic Cordarrelle Patterson in carries, rushing yards, and touchdowns.

Davis joins a Ravens team that struggled with running back depth last season. The club’s top two backs, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, both missed the entire 2021 campaign due to ACL injuries.

Three running backs made starts for Baltimore last year: Devonta Freeman (eight), Latavius Murray (six), and Ty’Son Williams (three). Quarterback Lamar Jackson led the team with 767 rushing yards, while no running back finished with more than 600 yards on the ground.

The Ravens withdrew the exclusive rights tender for Williams on Tuesday, making him a free agent, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Davis, 29, has accumulated 2,034 rushing yards over his seven-year career. His best effort came in 2020 when he put up 1,015 yards from scrimmage with the Carolina Panthers.
