Vikings: Todd Davis could give Packers depth at linebacker

The Packers moved on from veteran inside linebacker Christian Kirksey earlier this offseason to create cap space. It would make sense to add some more experience at the position this offseason. Todd Davies is a free agent this spring and could provide that for the Packers.

Davis played in 82 games for the Denver Broncos and was part of their dominant defense in their Super Bowl-winning 2015 season. During his six-year stay in Denver, Davis made 285 tackles, 21 tackles for loss, two sacks, 11 quarterback hits, 13 pass defenses, and one interception.

This past season, Davis played in 11 games with six starts for the Vikings.

Krys Barnes and Kamal Martin could be the Packers’ future at inside linebacker; both players impressed in their rookie seasons. But they still have work to do. In the meantime, a veteran linebacker like Davis could help this defense. He signed a one-year deal worth just $1.05 million with the Vikings last season and might not cost the Packers much more.

Signing Davis would be a low-risk move but could help the defense. He’s a talented, experienced linebacker who would add depth at the position.
