Former NFL player Tommy Davis was killed in motorcycle accident

Tommy Davis
Former NFL player Tommy Davis was killed in a motorcycle accident. He played in the National Football League for the Giants, Redskins and Saints.

Tommy Davis was one of the strongest players to ever play at the University of North Carolina. A matter of fact the former defensive lineman still holds the record at the school in the bench press (460), power clean (363) and in squatting (640) for a defensive end.

Tommy Davis lost his life this week unfortunately to a motorcycle accident. He was 37 years old, and had a stint in the NFL after going undrafted.

Davis spent time on the Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints and New York Giants roster.

Per 247Sports, Davis was quite the standout for the Tarheels.

At North Carolina, Davis played in all 12 games as a true freshman in 2002 and started the final five games of the year at defensive end. As a sophomore in 2003, Davis played in 11 games and started five and finished the season with 30 tackles, including 20 primary stops and 10 assists, two tackles for losses of nine yards, one fumble recovery and six quarterback hurries.

In 2004, Davis started all 12 games at defensive end and had 48 tackles, including 22 solo stops and 26 assists. The junior led the team with 7.5 tackles for losses of 22 yards and added three sacks and a team-high eight quarterback hurries.

Please keep Tommy Davis’ family in your prayers during this tragic event.
