Knile Davis Continues His NFL Guided Tour
The Shield can be a cruel mistress indeed, a harsh fact many journeyman football players have discovered.
However, running back Knile Davis has been flat out abused recently.
Dude's been rostered by three teams just this past week.
If you think that sounds ridiculous, well, that's because it is.
This fantastic voyage began when the Kansas City Chiefs decided their fourth-year tailback and former Jamaal Charles caddy was expendable.
Davis was traded to the injury-ravaged Green Bay Packers, who at the time were desperate for any old warm body.
The former Arkansas star qualified as such and appeared in a grand total of two games with the Pack before being unceremoniously released.
This is when the New York Jets got involved, and not surprisingly, things were handled poorly.
The Jets signed Davis and then released him within three hours in favor of fellow journeyman running back CJ Spiller.
If the Jets think it's cool to toy with another human being in such a fashion, then they're mistaken.
Davis, no doubt becoming increasingly fragile emotionally by the second, was mercifully re-signed by the Chiefs.
Ah, home sweet home.
But for how long?
Charles is done for the year, but Spencer Ware could return as early as this week after freeing himself from the NFL concussion protocol.
Davis is serving as familiar depth at the moment, but the Chiefs could easily activate the carousel once more, leaving Davis a broken man.
Andy Reid is such a pimp.
