The deals were essentially formalities, as both had been here working out -- in Davis' case, for most of the spring.
Davis will make $3.268 million this year and Marshall $1.759 million. Both would have been unrestricted free agents under the old labor rules, but were stuck thanks to changes that came along with the uncapped year.
-- Speaking of Davis, it sounds like we'll know more about his condition tomorrow.
He tweaked his right knee during an individual drill Tuesday morning, the same knee in which he tore the ACL last November. Davis walked off the field under his own power, alongside head trainer Ryan Vermillion.
Some tests were performed Tuesday, but more are pending, and that casts an ominous note on the proceedings.
If he's out any amount of time, it will thrust trade acquisition Jamar Williams to the fore, and again make them incredibly thin at linebacker.
Williams was picked up in the deal that sent SS Chris Harris to Chicago.
