Canadian Football League All-Star signs with Grand Rapids

The Grand Rapids Rampage added another seasoned NFL veteran to its offense, signing former San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Jerome Davis (Detroit, Mich.). The 6-7, 300-pound University of Minnesota product excelled last season with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, earning him a spot on the league’s East Division all-star team. “We’ve had a lot of key signings this offseason, but this is as big as any of them,” said Sparky McEwen, head coach and director of football operations for the Rampage. “Offensive line is the toughest position to play in football and Jerome has used his great athleticism and size to be successful at that position at the NFL level.” Davis spent eight seasons (1997-2004) with the NFL’s Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers. The former defensive end earned playing time with the 49ers in 2002 after making the difficult transition to the offensive tackle position. Davis went on to play six games over three seasons (2002-04) with San Francisco before joining the Argonauts for the 2005 and 2006 seasons.
