Giants signed TE Kellen Davis, formerly of the Seahawks, to a one-year contract.
Davis, 28, played 172 offensive snaps for Seattle last season and caught all three of his targets for 32 yards and one touchdown. After the Bears tried and failed miserably by attempting to make Davis a pass-catching tight end, he found a role as a blocker with the Seahawks. He'll do the same with the Giants. Apr 4 - 12:52 PM

Seahawks signed TE Kellen Davis, formerly of the Browns.

Davis worked out for the Seahawks on Tuesday, along with fellow free agent Daniel Fells. Davis was cut by the Browns two Sundays ago. He'll be the No. 3 tight end behind Zach Miller and rookie Luke Willson in Seattle.

Free agent TEs Kellen Davis and Dan Gronkowski worked out for the Bucs on Tuesday.

Neither player could survive final cuts in Cleveland. Tampa also worked out Hayden Smith. The Bucs are extremely thin at tight end with Tom Crabtree dealing with a high-ankle sprain.

Browns released TE Kellen Davis.

Cleveland guaranteed Davis $165,000 -- including a $65,000 signing bonus -- when it signed him to a one-year deal in March. Davis was abused as a blocker this preseason, and he caught just five passes for 43 yards in exhibition play. The Browns have just Gary Barnidge behind starter Jordan Cameron, so look for them to work the waiver wire or free-agent market for help ahead of Week 1.

Browns agreed to terms with TE Kellen Davis, formerly of the Bears, on a one-year contract.

The Browns have now signed Davis and Gary Barnidge to offset the losses of Ben Watson and Alex Smith. A blocker, Davis caught just 37 passes over the past two seasons. Davis should be in for a bigger role than Barnidge, but the Browns may not be done making moves at tight end. Coach Rob Chudzinski's offense makes heavy use of tight ends. As of now, Jordan Cameron is the favorite to catch passes.

Free agent TE Kellen Davis will visit the Browns Thursday.

New coach Rob Chudzinski's hunt for tight ends continues. If Davis does come aboard, it would be a best-case scenario for the fantasy prospects of intriguing ex-basketball player Jordan Cameron. Davis is a blocker at 6'7/267 that showed stones for hands during his doomed 2012 season in Chicago.

The Jets are interested in free agent TE Kellen Davis.

Davis has been drawing a ton of interest since being released by the Bears. He's an intriguing red-zone option at 6-foot-7 and 267 pounds, and he can also block. Pairing Davis with Jeff Cumberland still wouldn't be a cause for excitement.

Free agent TE Kellen Davis is drawing interest from the Steelers, Saints, Bengals, and Browns.

Davis has already visited Pittsburgh and New Orleans. Cincinnati missed out on blocking tight end Matt Spaeth, who signed with the Steelers on Friday night. Cleveland has two tight-end aficionados in coach Rob Chudzinski and OC Norv Turner. Davis' hands proved to be terrible last season, but he can still block.

Free agent TE Kellen Davis will visit the Steelers on Thursday.

Davis was released by the Bears on Wednesday after the team signed Martellus Bennett on Tuesday. Davis is an above-average blocker, but he has stone hands. He caught just 19 passes on 44 targets in 2012. Davis could replace free agent Leonard Pope as Pittsburgh's blocking tight end.

Bears released TE Kellen Davis.

As expected. Davis signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Bears last March but flopped massively. He dropped eight of the 44 targets that came his way en route to a 19/229/2 line. The Bears will have upgraded in a major way by signing Martellus Bennett. Dumping Davis saves $2.5 million against the cap. The Steelers are rumored to have interest.

The Chicago Tribune believes it's possible the Bears keep one of Kellen Davis and Matt Spaeth, "but not both."

With the tight end market shaping up nicely both in the draft and free agency, it's more likely than not the Bears part ways with both players. Inept as a pass catcher, Davis isn't worth his $2.4 million salary, while releasing Spaeth would clear $1.625 million in cap space. Jay Cutler badly needs a tight end who can do more than block.

Bears TEs coach Andy Bischoff says the team needs a tight end that can "threaten the defense."

"We need a tight end that can create stress in the middle of the field," said Bischoff. "We need a receiver who can catch the ball and we need a receiver who can block enough to be lined up in the backfield." New OC Aaron Kromer had Jimmy Graham for the last three years in New Orleans. The Bears will be exploring all avenues for an upgrade on Kellen Davis.

ESPN Chicago says it would be an "upset" if Kellen Davis returns to the Bears.

Davis is due $2.5 million in total for the final year of his two-year deal, but he proved to be a complete bust in 2012. He has appeared in all 80 games in his five seasons in the league, but Davis has managed to put up just 47 catches for 529 yards and 11 scores over that time. According to Pro Football Focus, Davis dropped eight of his 44 targets last year.

ESPN Chicago suggests TE Kellen Davis is a candidate for release.

Davis simply didn't work in Chicago. He was among the league-leaders in drops, never gained the faith of Jay Cutler and finished with 19 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns. Owed $2.4 million in 2013, it's hard to see Davis back in Chicago. In Mel Kiper's first mock draft, he had the Bears selecting Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert with the No. 20 overall pick.

Kellen Davis was held without a catch in Chicago's Week 17 win over the Lions.

He was targeted only once. As the Chicago Tribune suggests, Davis is "never athletic at the point of the catch" despite looking part. Davis finishes the year with just 19 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns, and among the league leaders in drops. Due $2.4 million in 2013, he's unlikely to be back with the Bears.
