Well the Dolphins have finally begun their secondary improvements, reaching a deal with Keith Davis, according to the Sun-Sentinel:
Davis, 29, will not only shore up a thin secondary and compete with recently re-signed strong safety Yeremiah Bell, Renaldo Hill and Jason Allen for a starting spot, but he will also bolster the special teams coverage units, a major weakness last season. Hill is still recovering from season-ending knee surgery.
Davis has 22 games of starting experience from Dallas. However, he's a far better run supporter than coverage safety, which is why Dallas eventually decided to go a different route next to Roy Williams (who can't cover anyone).
He is a terrific special teams player, though, and will surely excel in that role. He'll be interesting to watch, though, as he battles the likes of Yeremiah Bell for the starting strong safety position. One thing I'd expect is for Cameron Worrell to have a much tougher time making the team. Basically, Davis is a better version of Worrell. But we'll see what happens come training camp.
One interesting thing about Davis is that he has something in common with current Dolphin Joey Porter. Both have been shot:
Davis was also shot in the head and thigh while driving down a Dallas highway in July 2006 as he was returning from a family vacation. The police described it as an attempted carjacking. None of the wounds were considered serious.
So let's just hope Davis can make it to camp this year without having to dodge any bullets.
