I'm no scout of course, but I could not help but notice the connection here to the new running back Justin Davis who is scheduled to report to practice today after mandatory quarantine.
The NFL Rams, where he had the most regular season experience after several NFL camps and time on a practice roster, have only one experienced back left as of this news today. Justin Davis has more playing experience than the rest in camp now, which is not much in the regular season:
Xavier Jones and Raymond Calais have never taken a carry in an NFL regular season game, while Otis Anderson is an undrafted free agent rookie.
I don't agree with the author of this article on the veteran prospects for #2 either, for they are all far more expensive though there are probably others. Could the Rams come calling back for Davis?
Alternatively as I feel is more likely, Ottawa may have found a real gem here.
