The Bears are adding veteran competition at wide receiver and special teams, signing Trevor Davis to a one-year deal.

Davis started last season with the rival Packers before being traded to the Raiders and finishing the season with the Dolphins. He had 42 receiving yards against the Bears in London as a member of the Raiders.

Davis had eight catches for 111 yards last season and has 16 for 205 on his career.

He could help on special teams. At 6-foot-1, 188 pounds, Davis has averaged 10.1 yards as a punt returner and 22.4 yards on kickoff returns. The Packers drafted him in the fifth round out of Cal in 2016.

Davis might be best-known for being arrested at LAX in 2018 for joking about having a bomb. After meeting with the Los Angeles City Attorney, he was not charged with a crime.

Beginning this week, free agents that sign with teams do not count toward the 2021 compensatory draft pick formula.
