The Patriots continue to add players with special teams backgrounds via free agency, signing former Jaguars safety Cody Davis. Davis' agent, Jordan Woy, tweeted the move earlier on Monday.
Davis spent the first five of his seven NFL seasons with the Rams before playing the last two years with Jacksonville. He has appeared in 97 career games with five starts and has 83 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles to his credit.
The majority of Davis' work has come in the kicking game, which makes him a strong candidate to replace veteran Nate Ebner, who signed with the Giants as a free agent late last week. Like Ebner, Davis is a safety by trade who sees very little action on defense.
Davis was signed by the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech in 2013.
