Todd Davis is a bit of an odd player. He was extremely productive for the Broncos in 2018 and 2019 as the linebacker had 114 tackles or more in each of those seasons with 134 coming in 2019. He isn’t going to do a whole lot as far as putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks, so he isn’t the Mychal Kendricks type. But he also doesn’t miss on tons of tackles (just 4.2 percent in 2019) and Pete Carroll will like that.
While the Seahawks could still re-sign K.J. Wright the question would become does Wright return as a starter? And if he does, then what was the point of taking Jordyn Brooks in the first round in 2019? Brooks deserves a chance to start this year and the return of Wright would put that in question.
Davis, however, would be an excellent backup to either Brooks or Bobby Wagner. Davis is decent in coverage but very good in run defense. Seattle uses its linebackers to take on running backs while the defensive tackles take on the blockers. Davis would be excellent run support for Seattle.
Davis is also just 29 years old so he wouldn’t come in with older legs at the end of his career. He would come in motivated trying to earn his next contract and that would be a good thing for Seattle.
