Bengals sign ex-Titans receiver Davis

Former Tennessee Titans receiver Chris Davis has signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to ESPN.com.

Davis was a leading candidate to be the Titans punt returner last season when he suffered a hamstring injury and then was arrested for a DUI while the Titans were in Dallas for a preseason game.

Davis was subsequently released by the Titans after the arrest, but was re-signed on Nov. 3 after Tennessee released cornerback Cary Williams.

However, Davis’ second tenure with the Titans was short-lived as he was released four days later because of an injury to David Stewart that forced the Titans to add offensive lineman Fernando Velasco to the 53-man roster.

Davis was originally a fourth-round pick of the Titans in 2005.
