If you looked at social media at all on Tuesday, there's a good chance you saw a photo of running back Mike Davis working out on the Falcons' practice fields.

Davis, 28, signed a two-year deal worth a reported $5.5 million with the Falcons in March after spending the 2020 season with the Carolina Panthers. The 5-foot-9, 221-pound power back rushed for a career-high 642 yards on 165 carries and scored six touchdowns last year. Davis also added 59 catches for 373 yards and two scores in the passing game.
