Davis finished last season with the Denver Broncos after playing nine and half years with San Francisco. He won a Super Bowl with the Broncos, but had a relatively quiet season statistically, with 38 catches and 395 yards between the two teams.

A Washington DC-native and University of Maryland product, Davis tweeted about his new team on Thursday.
