This Training Camp Profile will discuss the 2016 season, a 2017 season outlook and a training camp prediction for New York Jets linebacker Demario Davis.
After spending a year with the Cleveland Browns, linebacker Demario Davis is back with the New York Jets. Davis played four years with the Jets before leaving to play in Cleveland for the 2016 season. Here is a 2017 Training Camp Profile for Davis.
2016 SEASON REVIEW
Davis stayed consistent in 2016, playing a lot like he did with the Jets before heading to Cleveland. He had two sacks, 59 tackles, 40 assisted tackles and a forced fumble.
2017 SEASON OUTLOOK
He has played pretty well for a middle linebacker, and I don’t see that changing. He should be about the same as he has all career long; a reliable tackler who can get the sack when needed.

TRAINING CAMP PREDICTION
Barring an injury or suspension (which probably won’t happen), Davis should have a fine training camp. He is a good player who plays for the team and not just for himself.
If he works hard, and he will, then he should do all right.
Davis has five years under his belt now, and while that isn’t too old yet, he is not as fresh as Lee. However, if he does better than Lee, then not starting him would be a mistake.
Neither Davis nor the fans shouldn’t worry about the veteran losing his job. They made this trade for a reason, and unless, as I mentioned earlier, he gets injured or suspended, then he should not only be able to keep his job, but also have plenty of playing opportunities during the 2017 regular season.
