“It helps greatly when you have a guy that accepts a challenge and can play at the level of Darius Slay. I don’t think he played at that level last year, but I think a lot went into that,” said Davis on a media call with reporters this week. “He had been there for awhile, obviously wasn’t happy with the situation there and now he goes to a place where he’s like, ‘hey they want me, they respect me.’ Typically, we do see players who still have it in the tank and I’m sure that he does, they make a nice little jump that first year somewhere else.
