The Bears on Wednesday announced that they have agreed to terms, pending a physical, with running back Mike Davis on a two-year contract.
Davis, 26, has appeared in 35 NFL games with nine starts over four seasons with the 49ers (2015-16) and Seahawks (2017-18). The 5-9, 217-pounder has rushed for 862 yards and five touchdowns on 234 carries and caught 59 passes for 408 yards and one TD.
Davis was selected by the 49ers in the fourth round of the 2015 draft out of South Carolina. In two seasons in San Francisco, he played in 14 games with one start, running for 108 yards and one touchdown on 54 attempts and catching 10 passes for 63 yards before being waived in May 2017.
After being claimed off waivers by the Seahawks, Davis opened the 2017 season on Seattle’s practice squad. He was eventually promoted to the 53-man roster in mid-November and started the final six games, rushing for 240 yards on 68 carries and catching 15 passes for 131 yards.
Davis blossomed in 2018, establishing career highs in all categories by rushing for 514 yards and four touchdowns on 112 attempts and catching 34 passes for 214 yards and one TD while appearing in 15 games with two starts.
Subbing for injured starter Chris Carson in a Week 4 win over the Cardinals, Davis rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries.
