After the Panthers announced late last night that Kaden Davis was being released, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN confirmed that Davis was being signed by the Arizona Cardinals after his stint with the Michigan Panthers. Davis who was a UDFA in 2022 from NW Missouri State, bounced back and forth between the Denver Broncos Practice Squad last season before joining the USFL.
Davis was signed with the Panthers on May 9th, after being released by the Broncos, while also replacing Devin Ross who was placed on injured reserve earlier in the USFL season. Davis was an instant contributor for Michigan being utilized on special teams as well as having a growing role in the offense. Davis totaled 83 Receiving Yards, 311 Kick Return Yards, and 22 Punt Return Yards totaling 416 All-Purpose Yards in just 5 games. In Michigan’s playoff game Davis’ role matured as the former NW Missouri State Alum totaled 101 All-Purpose Yards as the Panthers fell to the Maulers.
Kaden Davis wasn’t the only Davis to join the Cardinals as former Stallions Receiver Davion Davis also was signed to Arizona as well. Currently Davis is the first Panther to be signed with multiple players working out for NFL teams throughout the week. Currently the Panthers roster sits at 58 players with Davis now heading to Arizona for his 2nd opportunity with an NFL team.
