    Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy has reunited with a running back he's undoubtedly familiar with, inking Knile Davis to a contract. 

    Davis, who most recently played with the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs, rushed for just 28 yards last season in 11 games, but has had serious success in his career. 

    In the 2015 season with the Chiefs, Davis rushed for 463 yards and six touchdowns with Nagy as his offensive coordinator, and also caught 16 passes for 147 yards and another touchdown.

    It's unclear where Davis fits in the team's plans, but he'll at the very least give them another backfield option as they continue to evaluate and tweak their roster in the coming weeks.
