Dollars and sense: A look at the Davis deal

SHARE Dollars and sense: A look at the Davis deal

Weve got the numbers on the Rashied Davis deal.

Its pretty much what his camp was seeking when it went shopping in restricted free agency. Davis turned down an extension from the club during last season and the move paid off. He had signed a one-year tender for $927,000 this season and would have been an unrestricted free agent next March. Signing now gets him some security and keeps him where he wants to be.

The base value of the three-year contract is $3.87 million. Escalators can max it out at $5.87 million.
