Former Auburn CB awarded to Dolphins on waivers; Miami places 2 SEC rookies on reserve/COVID-19 list
Former Auburn CB Javaris Davis was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Kansas City Chiefs after the 2020 NFL Draft.
However, on Sunday, the Chiefs announced they were waiving Davis, sending him to the waiver wire. Now, the ex-Tiger is heading to a new squad.
The Miami Dolphins announced via Twitter that they had been awarded Davis’s rights on Monday afternoon:

Former Auburn CB Noah Igbinoghene — one of the Dolphins’ 3 first-round picks — clearly likes the news that he’ll be reunited with a Tiger teammate:

Of course, the Dolphins’ tweet was a mixed bag of news, as the team also announced former Ole Miss DL Benito Jones and ex-LSU long snapper Blake Ferguson had been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
That doesn’t mean they’ve tested positive for the virus, necessarily, just that they may have had exposure to someone who had it.
