Dolphins OL Davis receives three-year extension

The Miami Dolphins signed offensive lineman Jesse Davis to a three-year extension, the team announced Saturday.

ESPN reported that the deal is worth $15 million, attributing the amount to Davis’ agent, Collin Roberts. The contract, which runs through 2022, includes $8.5 million in guarantees.

Davis has played guard and tackle in 32 games (26 starts) over the last two seasons. He didn’t miss an offensive snap in 2018.

Davis was slated to play right tackle this season but worked at left tackle all week after the trade of Laremy Tunsil to the Houston Texans. The Dolphins play the Baltimore Ravens in Sunday’s season opener.

The 27-year-old Davis was undrafted in 2015 after finishing his college career at Idaho.

Davis was cut by the Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets (twice) before eventually catching on with the Dolphins’ practice squad late in the 2016 season. He emerged as a key player the following season.

Davis is making $645,000 this season.
