Safety Keith Davis knows from personal experience the scrutiny recently-signed defensive end Tank Johnson is going to endure.
Davis has had a few off-the-field problems before. Last summer, he survived a gun shot wound. And he knows all eyes will be on Johnson.
"I am sure Tank knows all eyes are going to be on him from anything he does," Davis said. "Good or bad, it’s going to be magnified. Mostly the bad because people want to see if he’s going to make the same mistakes. I believe people deserve a second chance. I believe he’s going to do what’s right."
But Davis does not see any similarities between his situation and Johnson's.
"My situation was different. I never did anything wrong. I was a victim the whole time. The guy shot me. I wasn’t bothering anybody," Davis said. "I’ve never been in trouble a day in my life. Just continue to do what you’re doing. Stay out of the light and be the best you can be and I think Tank will do the same thing."
