Denver Broncos Sign Eric Davis
Aug. 02, 2001
GREELEY, Colo. (AP) _ The Denver Broncos have signed former San Francisco and Carolina cornerback Eric Davis.
They also traded linebacker Henri Crockett to the Atlanta Falcons for a seventh-round draft choice. Crockett had signed as a free agent from the Falcons in the off-season.
The 33-year-old Davis, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, could strengthen Denver's secondary and challenge left cornerback Deltha O'Neal for a starting job.
The 11-year veteran played under Denver defensive coordinator Ray Rhodes in San Francisco. He missed about half of last season with a hand injury.
