Saints linebacker DeMario Davis wins Call To Courage Award

Davis accepted the award Saturday in Buffalo

Take a look at the newest addition to the Saints roster, veteran linebacker Demario Davis.

New Orleans Saints linebacker DeMario Davis on Saturday accepted the 2018 Call To Courage Award from Indianapolis Colts Coach Frank Reich during the Call To Courage Award Breakfast in Buffalo, N.Y.

The Call to Courage Award honors a player who displays exemplary character and leadership and a strong commitment to his Christian faith. Former winners include running back Curtis Martin, quarterback Kurt Warner and linebacker London Fletcher.

"This is a huge honor, especially when you do the research and realize the guys who have come before you and won it," Davis told the Buffalo News. "A lot of my good friends have won it: Thomas Davis, Ben Watson, Jon Kitna and Kurt Warner, guys I really admire. What I think about those men, and to be in the same conversation with those guys, it's a huge honor."

Davis signed with the Saints as a free agent after playing five years with the New York Jets (2012-2015 and 2017) and one year with the Cleveland Browns. The 6-foot-2 248-pounder attended Arkansas State.
