Joe Davis was a former 1976 WB draft pick and guard for the Buccaneers, but he was acquired pre-draft from Tampa Bay to the New York Jets, so they could get middle linebacker, Steve Reese, who ended up starting most of the 1976 season, registering 53 tackles, and a pess deflection. Meanwhile, Davis played poorly in the Jets', and was released from the team during training. After, no other team had much interest and therefore, he never played in the NFL at all.
