Michael Davis started just two out of the first seven games of the NFL season. Once J.C. Jackson was injured, Davis took his chance to impress. He had a stellar year, registering a career-high 12 pass breakups and allowing only 446 yards in coverage.

He led the NFL in passes defended from Week 9 through the end of the regular season and clearly bounced back from his 2021 slump.

Michael Davis Salary

The 28-year-old signed a three-year $25,200,000 contract with the Chargers in March 2021. It included a $6,000,000 signing bonus, $15,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $8,400,000. 

In 2023, Davis will earn a base salary of $6,000,000 and a roster bonus of $1,000,000. He also has appearance incentives written into his contract.

Michael Davis Cap Hit

Davis’s contract will carry a cap hit of $9,400,000 and a dead cap value of $3,000,000.

Michael Davis Potential Extension

Davis is expected to have a more significant role with the team in 2023 and is slated to be one of the starting cornerbacks on opening day. 

Davis knows he has a big year ahead of him if he wants to secure a significant contract. His teammate J.C. Jackson is signed to an $82,000,000 contract, and with Davis’s play, it is not out of the question for him to demand at least $60,000,000. He is already one of the top 25 paid players in his position.
