Jaguars DE Ryan Davis signs 1-year tender offer

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Ryan Davis has signed his one-year tender offer.

Davis signed the contract Monday, two days before the deadline that would have made him a restricted free agent.

Davis has played in 38 games since being promoted to the active roster in 2013. He has 31 tackles, 11 sacks, four passes defenses, three forced fumbles and an interception. Originally signed by Jacksonville as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2012, Davis had a career-high 6 1/2 sacks in 2014.

General manager Dave Caldwell says ''Ryan brings a unique skillset to the team and has shown good production in his role, as evidenced by his double-digit sacks over the past two seasons. We're excited about seeing that role expand in the future.''
