The Houston Gamblers produced plenty of defensive talent this season, and Domenique Davis is a prime example of just that. He was quite impressive in the USFL, and now signs a deal with the Cincinnati Bengals heading into training camp.
We've signed the following free agents:
DT Domenique Davis, DE Raymond Johnson, and LB Tegray Scales

Davis was sensational for Kevin Sumlin’s defense. He finished the season with 54 total tackles, and four sacks. No matter who the opponent was, Domenique was making their lives miserable in the trenches.

While the Gamblers struggled to actually win games for most of the USFL’s season, Davis was consistent week in and week out. His presence on the defensive line was a sight that no opposing lineman wanted to see.
So incredibly excited to announce that Domenique Davis @NiqueSavo has signed with the @Bengals
This man was the unsung hero for the @USFLGamblers all season and he deserves every bit of this! @USFL @CoachSumlin @coachmo4040 #USFLtoNFL #USFLNetwork #ALLIN #USFL #SpringFootball pic.twitter.com/F8g25JElxg

Houston’s defense featured some of the league’s most elite defenders. Chris Odom, Donald Payne, Will Likely, and others were All-USFL selections this year. Even with their presence, Davis made a name for himself on the Gamblers, posting sensational numbers in 2022.
He now has an opportunity to chase his NFL dreams with the Cincinnati Bengals, all thanks to his hard work and determination in the USFL.
