NFL Rumors: Patriots Release Defensive Lineman Keionta Davis


April 26, 2020

One day after the 2020 NFL Draft concluded, the New England Patriots reportedly have released Keionta Davis, according to The Athletic’s Jeff Howe.

A 26-year-old defensive end, Davis played merely six games for the Patriots, all of which came during the 2018 season.

Davis signed with the Patriots in August 2017 after entering the NFL undrafted out of the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. He missed his entire rookie season on the non-football injury list. Davis spent the entire 2019 season on injured reserve, as well.

The development comes after the Patriots re-signed Davis in mid-March, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

Davis was among a deep group on the defensive line including Lawrence Guy, Beau Allen, Adam Butler, Deatrich Wise, Byron Cowart, Nick Thurman and Tashawn Bower.

Davis likely didn’t benefit from the Patriots’ 10 draft selections, specifically with New England spending a pair of Day 2 picks on edge rushers Josh Uche (No. 60) and Anfernee Jennings (No. 87).
