Titus Davis, a former receiver at Central Michigan and older brother of Titans wideout Corey Davis has passed away. He was 27 and died on Wednesday morning surrounded by family and friends.
According to Detroit News, Davis had been undergoing treatment for a rare form of kidney cancer- renal medullary carcinoma, since July. He had been undergoing chemotherapy since late July in Houston.
The news outlet also added Renal medullary carcinoma’s average survival is less than a year after diagnosis.
Titus Davis’ death was announced on Twitter by Dolphins safety Kavon Frazier. They played together at Central Michigan University.
Late Davis was arguably the greatest receiver in CMU history. He held the school records for receiving yards (3,700) and receiving touchdowns (37), surpassing Antonio Brown to claim both of those records.
At the start of his career, Titus Davis was an undrafted free agent with the Chargers. He was then on the practice squads of the Jets and the Bills and in 2017 was with the Bears on one tryout. Davis also spent a brief time in the NFL.
