The Miami Dolphins have taken a “shot” with 6 year Dallas Cowboy special team standout Keith Davis. Davis the former Cowboy special team captain rejoins familiar faces in Miami. It was Bill Parcells who gave him a shot in the first place. The word “shot” is not entirely ironic however.
Davis has been shot 4 times. He was shot outside of a strip club while waiting to pick up a friend, twice in that instance and then two more times in a car-jacking attempt on a Dallas highway. In that incident, Davis took the shots to his head and thigh. Lets hope he finds a way to stay out of Southbeach.
Davis does come with may raves from previous coaching staffs and fellow teammates. He is known as a hard hitter and will also add depth at the cornerback position. Davis has said that he wants the chance to play more defense. In Miami, he may get that opportunity.
In addition to Davis, the Dolphins have added place kicker Dave Rayner. Rayner will compete with current kicker Jay Feely who struggled last year with his kick-offs. The Phins are currently working with punter Brandon Fields to see if kick-offs is something that he can handle. Rayner spent part of last season with the San Diego Chargers.
