Davis has agreed to terms with the Rams on a one-year contract, the Associated Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Davis, who rushed for 12 touchdowns with the Panthers last season before being shut down with a knee injury, should instantly become the Rams' #2 back and could steal some short-yardage touches from #1 back, Steven Jackson. However, at this point Davis cannot be counted on as an every down back and should still be considered a major injury risk.
Davis worked out for the Rams on Wednesday and was offered a contract, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Davis, who underwent microfracture knee surgery in 2004 and was released by the Carolina Panthers on March 1, apparently checked out fine in St. Louis. If Davis' knee is completely healthy and he does sign with the Rams, he'll practically be gifted the backup running back spot behind starter Steven Jackson with Moe Williams and Tony Fisher left to battle it out for the number three spot. Furthermore, with Steven Jackson's injury history, Davis would become a fantasy sleeper type player especially if he performs well enough to steal some carries away from Jackson.
Davis is visiting the Eagles in Philadelphia on Monday, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The 32-year-old was released by Carolina in March and few teams have shown interest thus far. It's hard to tell if a potential move for the veteran is an indication that Brian Westbrook's sprained foot is more serious than originally thought, or if the ineffectiveness of the Eagles' backup running backs has spurred interest in bringing someone in. The Redskins are also rumored to have interest following the injury of Clinton Portis.
The Panthers released Davis (knee) on Wednesday.

By releasing him, the Panthers saved $2.8 million against the cap for 2006. If Davis can prove that the balky knee that landed him on IR this past season is sound, he should catch on with a team looking for a veteran back with a nose for the end zone.
The Panthers will likely release Davis (knee) in the coming weeks, the Associated Press reports.

"They'll go through a process they've got to go through and see who fits best with the team and who can help them win," Davis said. "If they want me back here, I'm available. I would love to be here."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Stephen Davis.

2006

Davis passed one of the most rigorous physicals the Rams have ever given a player which should be an indication that his knee is not currently a problem. With that issue seemingly behind him Davis became the Rams' #2 running back behind starter Steven Jackson as soon as he signed his one year contract. Despite Davis missing all of the Rams' preseason head coach Scott Linehan still said he expected the veteran back to see "quite a bit of action" in Week 1 against Denver, which can only mean he's going to be seeing quite a bit of action all year, or until his knee gives out. With Steven Jackson having struggled with injuries himself over the last couple of years Davis could become a valuable fantasy commodity. However, as long as Jackson is serviceable expect Davis to be limited to 8-12 touches a game at most with Jackson still seeing most of the goal line touches as well.

2005

An old warhorse with 1,725 career carries, Davis tore cartilage in his right knee during a practice in last season’s second week and only managed 16 more carries the rest of the way. Davis had microfracture surgery on his knee in November with the hopes of being ready for training camp, but there’s no definite timetable for his return, and there’s some chance that his career is over. Assuming Davis returns relatively intact, he’s a bruising between-the-tackles runner with a good burst to the hole and the ability to cut back and use his blockers. He likely would share carries with DeShaun Foster, though rookie Eric Shelton could also be in the mix as well.

2004

You would think that Davis’ well-publicized comeback season would have made his owners happy, but they were again disappointed with his pedestrian TD total. It’s time we all realize that Davis just isn’t a good goal-line runner. Last year, he was 7-for-28 in converting his opportunities inside the opponents’ 10-yard line. The prior two years combined he was 12-for-55. Want more evidence of Davis’ short-yardage struggles? The Panthers were a poor 19th in converting these runs into first downs during ’03. Think of Davis as the anti-Marcus Allen. Davis also doesn’t generate many receiving yards, turned 30 this spring and is on pace to register his 2,000th carry in ’04. Those are all bad fantasy indicators. Davis owners need to reach a little to ensure the talented DeShaun Foster is on their roster, as Davis should be expected to miss at least a couple of starts. He’s ranked this high only because of his better-than-expected 2003 performance and the Panthers solid offensive line and skill players.

2003

Davis may never again be a superstar, but he's now headed to a team that's perfectly suited for him. The Panthers are a strong defensive club that wants to run a conservative, power-running offense. Carolina doesn't have a dominant line by any means, but it's improving, and Davis will once again have the peace of mind knowing that he'll get 20 to 30 carries a game, no matter what. Spurrier usually was looking for a reason to prematurely junk the running game last fall, but you can be sure the Panthers will be more patient. Look for a mild revival from Davis this season.
