“They measured us a week and a half ago and they said I was 6-11, which I don’t want to be,” Davis said in a visit with the Black Blue Report, while laughing good-naturedly. “I think 6-10 is the perfect height for me. Six-ten sounds perfect to me. I’m technically 6-11, but I’m (going to say I’m) 6-10. I will always tell everybody 6-10, I don’t care if I’m (really) 7-3. Scientifically, I’m 6-11. I grew an inch. Maybe it’s the (extra height of my) hair, I don’t know.”

In addition to his slight height increase, Davis feels stronger after the work he put in this summer, in several different areas of his body. He now weighs 250 pounds; he’d like to stay between 247 and 250 during the season. “Last year, I played at 243 or 245,” Davis said. “Right now, I’m 250. I’ve got see how I feel playing at that weight… I’ll test it out in preseason and see. “Being able to work with some of our guys and correcting everything I do (helped). From shoulders to ankles, I didn’t do a lot of it last (offseason). Now my ankles and hips, glutes, shoulders are a lot stronger. Everything is stronger.”

It was Davis’ first full-scaled work with his teammates since he underwent a surgical procedure in March to fix a stress reaction problem in his left knee cap. Davis also suffered a torn labrum last season, but he did not require surgery on his left shoulder. ”I feel great and I’m just happy to be out there,” Davis said. ”I love the game so much that it started to be frustrating when I couldn’t play or they pull you out. The main goal is to be ready for October 26 (opener against Denver). ”Right now, I think I’m heading in the right direction toward getting there. Today everything felt great. I feel like I’m more explosive than what I was and more powerful.”
