  Seahawks | Austin Davis contract update    Wed Jun 21, 07:50 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Austin Davis signed a one-year deal worth $855,000. The deal includes a $50,000 signing bonus, and Davis would receive a $30,000 bonus if he is on the roster at the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Davis is competing for the primary backup spot behind Russell Wilson. He's got to beat out Trevone Boykin for that job.

Free-agent QB Austin Davis (Broncos) signed an undisclosed contract with the Seattle Seahawks Monday, June 5.

Footballguys view: Davis is a seasoned pro who has played in a similar offense to what Seattle runs. He'll work as the third-team QB behind starter Russell Wilson and backup Trevone Boykin.

  Seahawks | Austin Davis visiting Seahawks    Wed May 24, 11:16 AM

Free-agent QB Austin Davis (Broncos) is visiting the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday, May 24, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Davis held a clipboard behind Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch last year. He's likely to do the same no matter where else he lands. Davis is likely just a camp arm for any team that adds him.

  Broncos | Week 15 Denver inactives    Sun Dec 18, 03:01 PM

The Denver Broncos have declared QB Austin Davis, LB Brandon M. Marshall, OG Connor McGovern, WR Kalif Raymond, DB Lorenzo Doss, OG Ty Sambrailo, DL Vontarrius Dora inactive for Week 15.

Footballguys view: Marshall's absence will only help LeGarrette Blount attack the weakness of the Broncos defense, their play against the run.

Footballguys view: The Broncos will miss Talib and Wolfe facing a high-powered, balanced offense in the Superdome. Don't be as scared to play your Saints as you normally would against a defense that has the Broncos reputation.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian not starting    Sat Oct 8, 06:08 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) will not be the starting quarterback in Week 5 because of his shoulder injury, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Siemian has had two shoulder injuries in roughly two months. The first was a shoulder injury in the preseason where he hurt his right shoulder missing a tackle after an interception he threw. This last injury came after getting body-slammed by the Bucs defense, but it was to his left shoulder. The team needs to give him plenty of time to properly heal.

  Browns | Cleveland on fifth QB in five games    Mon Sep 19, 08:31 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler will be the fifth starting quarterback in as many games for the Browns. Going back to the last two weeks of last season, the Browns have started former QBs Johnny Manziel and Austin Davis and QBs Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Josh McCown (shoulder) and now Kessler. Cleveland is the second team since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 to start five different quarterbacks in five straight games, according to Elias.

Footballguys view: Wow....just wow. Hey, at least you have LeBron and the Cavs!

  Broncos | Austin Davis lands in Denver    Sat Sep 3, 06:14 PM

Free-agent QB Austin Davis (Browns) has agreed to a one-year contract with the Denver Broncos. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Davis plays with a lot of toughness and moxie, and he's got more starting experience than either Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch. He'll be there to mentor both players while he learns the nuances of the Gary Kubiak system. Davis goes through his progressions quickly, and he's an accurate passer on short and intermediate throws. For his career, Davis has completed 236-of-378 passes (62.4%) for 2,548 yards with 13 touchdowns and 12 interceptions (80.4 rtg.). He also has rushed 23 times for 69 yards (3.0 avg.).

  Cowboys | Dallas will host Austin Davis    Tue Aug 30, 07:53 PM

Free-agent QB Austin Davis (Browns) will visit the Dallas Cowboys Wednesday, Aug. 31, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Davis has several starts in the NFL, so the Cowboys interest makes sense. They'll begin the season with rookie Dak Prescott as their starter, but they need to find his primary backup with Tony Romo (back) on the mend.

  Browns | Austin Davis among Browns cuts    Mon Aug 29, 08:36 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis, TE E.J. Gibbs, PK Travis Coons and LB Paul Kruger were cut by the team Monday, Aug. 29.

  Browns | Austin Davis has chance to stick    Thu Jul 28, 01:44 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis has a chance to stick around with the team if the organization elects to deal or release QB Josh McCown during training camp and the preseason. Davis was signed to a two-year contract extension through 2017, but only $600,000 is guaranteed.

Footballguys view: There's no way four quarterbacks end up in camp, Cody Kessler isn't getting cut and we expect Robert Griffin III to win the starting job. That leaves one job for McCown and Davis, and given that McCown has little upside, we could see Davis remaining. Of course, that leaves almost no experience behind Griffin if he were to get hurt.

  Browns | Austin Davis struggles in Week 16    Sun Jan 3, 05:23 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis went 24-for-46 for 240 yards and two interceptions against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17.

Footballguys view: Davis had an opening to show what he has for the Browns and other teams that might be in the quarterback market but didn't really do anything to distinguish himself.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel ruled out    Thu Dec 31, 12:42 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) has officially been ruled out for the season finale in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel is in the league's concussion protocol. QB Austin Davis will start with QB Pat Devlin as the backup.

Footballguys view: We're not sure we buy this magic concussion and wonder if the team is balking throwing him out there after that video earlier this week. Austin Davis is getting the start and will be a QB3. Manziel's future with the team is shaky at this point.

  Browns | Austin Davis to start    Thu Dec 31, 11:43 AM

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis will start in place of QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) Sunday, Jan. 3, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) is not expected to play in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers after going in the concussion protocol Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: The timing of this injury is interesting to say the least. Manziel played the entire game in Week 16, and we didn't hear about him being looked at for a concussion during the game--even though he did take some big shots against the Chiefs. Now, he may not play against the Steelers. QB Austin Davis is expected to start in Manziel's place.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) will start in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers if he's cleared to play while in the concussion protocol.

Footballguys view: If Manziel can't go, QB Austin Davis would make his second start of the year ahead of QB Terrelle Pryor.

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis accounted for 231 yards in his first start Sunday, Dec. 6, as the Browns lost to the Cincinnati Bengals 37-3.

Footballguys view: Johnny Manziel could get another shot yet. In Davis's defense, Travis Benjamin went out early with a shoulder injury, leaving Brian Hartline as the #1 receiver. San Francisco comes to Cleveland next week.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel might start again    Thu Dec 3, 12:45 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could still start again at some point down the stretch this season despite the announcement Wednesday, Dec. 2, that QB Austin Davis would start in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals. 'The decision was made, it's Austin for this week and I'm not going to go beyond that,' head coach Mike Pettine said.

Footballguys view: Pettine knows that he can't completely shut Manziel out because Davis could get hurt or any number of things could happen. It's clear he doesn't want to and wishes to stand firm on his punishment of Manziel. So rather than back himself completely into a corner, he's leaving an out. Austin Davis will continue to start - on the field, not on your fantasy team. He's a QB3 at best this week and shouldn't be in a lineup.

  Browns | Austin Davis to start    Wed Dec 2, 11:11 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis will start Sunday, Dec. 6, against the Cincinnati Bengals. QB Johnny Manziel will serve as the backup.

Footballguys view: Davis has a gunslinger mentality and will sling the rock to WR Travis Benjamin on downfield routes. Having him in the lineup also helps buoy the fantasy value of TE Gary Barnidge. Davis could also check down more passes to RB Duke Johnson Jr. (who we have as a what the heck flex in PPR leagues).

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (clavicle) was in a sling after the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Nov. 30, and he will have more tests Tuesday, Dec. 1, after undergoing X-rays after the game.

Footballguys view: Head coach Mike Pettine didn't say whether QBs Austin Davis or Johnny Manziel would start next week if McCown can't play. Manziel did not play against the Ravens after McCown was injured.

  Browns | Austin Davis seeing starter reps    Wed Sep 16, 02:33 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis will receive some repetitions with the first-team offense this week with QB Josh McCown (concussion) still in the concussion protocol. The Browns are preparing as if QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) will start against the Tennessee Titans. Manziel is resting his elbow in portions of practice.

Footballguys view: If McCown isn't playing and we know Manziel is having elbow issues--plus is prone to taking lots of abuse--then this makes all the sense in the world. We like Manziel because of his ability to gain ground yards, though as no more than a QB2. We can't say the same for Davis, though we applaud the Browns for making sure he is prepared.
