Dallas Cowboys lose Keith Davis, agrees to terms with the Dolphins

New, comments

No surprise here, but Keith Davis has agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins. He joins Julius Jones and Jacques Reeves as free-agents the Cowboys were willing to let go based on past productivity and the costs involved in this year’s free-agent market. This hurts us some on special teams, Davis’ strong-suit, but in Miami he is going to get a chance to compete at real playing time at safety.

The article talks about Davis and his career in the NFL, but the crazy part - something we know all about but Dolphins’ fans are probably just hearing about - is Davis’ history of attracting bullets.

Davis, a Texas native, has a strange history of getting shot. He missed the entire 2003 season after suffering a gunshot wound to his hip and elbow while waiting to pick up a friend at a topless club. Then-Cowboys coach Bill Parcells released Davis, but re-signed him a year later after he excelled during a stint with the Berlin Thunder of the now defunct NFL Europe league.

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.
