According to Jamal Davis II, it was based on his own request. He posted on Twitter stating “I asked for my release.” It has not yet been clarified as to the reasons why Jamal Davis no longer wanted to play for the Alouettes.

Davis has been listed as the starting defensive end in every game except for 2 games in which he was listed as the 2nd string defensive end so far this season for the Alouettes. In 14 games he had 22 tackles and 3 quarterback sacks.

Davis joined the Alouettes late in the season following a sting with the Los Angeles Chargers. Last year he played in the final 6 regular season games for the Alouettes and 2 playoff games and contributed 10 tackles and 2 sacks including the playoffs.

Davis was also an Alouetted in 2021 playing in 9 games contributing 17 tackles and 4 sacks before briefly leaving for the NFL.

Davis appeared in 3 NFL games in 2019 with Miami and had stints with Houston, Indianapolis, Tennessee, and Cleveland in the NFL.
