If there's one thing the Baltimore Ravens are going to do, it's run the ball.

And on Tuesday, the team announced the signing of another runner to its stable of backs: former Falcons RB Mike Davis.

Davis was recently released by Atlanta after just one season. 

The 29-year-old appeared in all 17 games for the Falcons, making eight starts. However, the emergence of Cordarrelle Patterson as the team's go-to weapon out of the backfield made Davis expendable.

Prior to his Peach State arrival, Davis had stints with the Panthers, Bears, Seahawks and 49ers. He was a fourth-round pick of San Francisco back in 2015.

Now the 220-pound RB joins a Ravens offense built for churning out tough yards on the ground. J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill still figure to get the bulk of the carries in B-more.

But, given the team's injury history at that spot, it wouldn't be surprising to see Davis get some touches throughout the season.

As a near full-time starter in Carolina after Christian McCaffrey went down, the veteran proved to be a reliable option.
