The San Francisco 49ers announced on Thursday that they have signed cornerback Will Davis to a one-year deal. In order to make room on the roster, the team has waived wide receiver Rashad Ross.

After spending the first two games of the 2015 season with Miami, he was traded to the Baltimore Ravens on September 21, 2015. Over the past two seasons with Baltimore (2015-16), he appeared in five games and registered five tackles, two passes defensed and one interception. Last season, he saw action in three games prior to being waived by the team on November 4, 2016.

A 27-year-old native of Spokane, WA, Davis played collegiately at Utah State University for two seasons (2011-12) after transferring from De Anza (Cupertino, CA) College. He appeared in 26 games (18 starts) with the Aggies and finished his career with 99 tackles and five interceptions.
