The Los Angeles Chargers announced on Tuesday they re-signed wide receiver Geremy Davis, who emerged as a key special teams contributor in 2018.
Davis appeared in 14 games, and while he didn’t register a catch, proved to be one of the Bolts’ better blocking wideouts. Turn on the film of some of the Chargers' longest runs and you’ll see the 6-3, 211-pounder manhandling cornerbacks downfield.
Meanwhile, heading into the 2018 campaign, Head Coach Anthony Lynn challenged Davis to improve on special teams. The 27-year old responded in a major way, finishing third on the team with 13 tackles in the kicking game, per coaches stats.
The 6-3, 211-pound Davis originally entered the NFL as a sixth-round pick (186th overall) of the New York Giants in 2015. He caught two passes in 10 games as a rookie before being claimed off waivers midway through 2016 by the Chargers.
