Davis has led the team in tackles each year since he signed with New Orleans in 2018. He’s been a pro-bowler as a Saints twice and has not missed a game in 9 NFL seasons.

Since he arrived, the Black and Gold have been a top-five run defense the last three years.

In 2020, Davis finished with 119 total tackles and 4 sacks on a unit that was fourth in the league, allowing 310 yards a game.

The Saints open training camp later this month.
