San Jose, Calif. (PRWEB) August 4, 2005
The Chicago Bears have signed cornerback Rashied Davis to a three-year deal. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 5-10, 180 pound cornerback spent the past three seasons in the Arena Football League playing for the San Jose Sabercats. Davis played in all 16 of San Jose's games in 2004, earning All-Ironman Team honors as a receiver/defensive back. He led the league in kickoff returns with a 24.1-yard average and topped San Jose with 1,795 all-purpose yards. He also ranked third on his team with 44 tackles and tied for second with three interceptions.
In addition to being a stand-out player with the San Jose Sabercats, Davis was a member of the 2004 San Jose ZFOOTBALL Men's Elite division champions, the Violators.
Rashied attended John F. Kennedy High School in Granada Hills, California -- where he did not play football. He played his first snap of organized football at West Los Angeles Community College. Rashied went on to play at San Jose State University, playing wide receiver and defensive back, and leading the Spartans in touchdown receptions in his junior year.
