Charles Douglas "Charlie" Davis (born January 16, 1952) is a former American football running back for the Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League (NFL). A 1974 NFL Draft choice from the University of Colorado, he rushed 72 times for 375 yards and caught 19 passes for 171 yards as a rookie, but suffered a preseason knee injury that prevented him from playing in 1975. In 1976, he was traded to the expansion Buccaneers for a future draft choice, which turned out to be a 1977 fourth-rounder. Davis scored the Buccaneers' first-ever offensive touchdown, a 1-yard run in week 4 of the 1976 season against the Baltimore Colts, but later suffered another knee injury and spent the remainder of the 1976 season and the 1977 season on injured reserve.
