FLOWERY BRANCH — Former Falcons quarterback Dominique Davis, who was released after minicamp, was signed by the Tennessee Titan on Tuesday.

Davis entered the NFL as an undrafted college free agent in 2012.

He spent two seasons (2012-13) in Atlanta as the backup quarterback on the 53-man roster, and played in one game (at Tampa Bay) during the 2013 season.

Davis was waived by the Falcons this past June after the Falcons were able to acquire T.J. Yates from the Houston Texans for linebacker Akeem Dent.

Davis, who started his career at Boston College, was a two-year starter at East Carolina, where he threw for 7,192 yards and 62 touchdowns.

Is he the #2 or 3 qb? He always played with the 2nd or 3rd string overrated lines that we still have. I hope to see him with the 1st unit this season. I bet he shines. Also,td needs to GO!!

Contact the Rams to see it they are interested in Yates.

Why in the world would anyone want him...he never did anything with the Falcons when he had the chance.

I was never too crazy about Davis, but I'm not sure he isn't better than either of our current back-ups.  Are we going to enter the season with a credible back-up, or not?

Get some value for Yates before you cut him. A QB with starting experience including a playoff win should have some value. Go earn it, Dimitroff

Yates would look great wearing a Rams uniform. They need a quarterback of his caliber.

A Bust.

Titans/Oilers have always been champions of the Black QB from Moon, to McNair, to Young.

Renfree needs to be number 2 and Matthews should have been 3.  Yates is not that good.... They might as well bring back Chris Redman instead of have Yates at 2.

Davis has mobility. St. Louis could have used him.

Yates looks lost.  I think we cut two of the wrong QBs.  I wish we still had Akeem Dent.  Anyone know how he is doing at Houston?

@gfw Renafree looks like a mini Matt Ryan, and is perfect for this offense. Yates shouldn't have even been brought here

@Drumdaddy Love the idea.  We'd have to track down and burn all copies of the pre-season game tapes, however.
