Lions waived TE Kellen Davis.

The Lions tight end corps is finally returning to health. Davis' roster spot is needed to plug holes on the offensive line.
Nov 25 - 12:33 PM

Lions signed TE Kellen Davis.

S Jerome Couplin was waived in a corresponding roster move. Davis' addition is a sign the Lions are expecting at least one of Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) to miss Sunday's trip to London.

Free agent TE Kellen Davis worked out for the Saints on Tuesday.

The Saints are likely just covering their bases in case Jimmy Graham (shoulder) isn't ready for Week 7. Graham is expected to return following the Saints' Week 6 bye, however.
Oct 7 - 5:19 PM

Ravens worked out free agent TE Kellen Davis.

The Ravens are looking for depth behind Owen Daniels after losing Dennis Pitta to a season-ending hip injury. Emmanuel Ogbuehi, Matt Mulligan, and UDFA Jake Murphy also visited on Tuesday.
Sep 23 - 11:57 AM

Free agent TE Kellen Davis visited the Browns on Tuesday.

It's a sign the Browns aren't sure of Jordan Cameron's (shoulder) status for Week 2. Davis was one of the Giants' final cuts. He caught three passes across 15 games for the Seahawks last season.
Sep 9 - 2:07 PM

Giants released TE Kellen Davis.

Davis got plenty of first-string reps in the black hole known as the Giants' tight end room, but ends up losing out to Adrien Robinson, Daniel Fells and Larry Donnell. Davis could rejoin the Giants after Week 1, when his contract would no longer be fully guaranteed.
Aug 30 - 10:00 AM

Kellen Davis was the starting tight end for the Giants' regular-season dress rehearsal against the Jets, but wasn't targeted in the passing game.

He split time with Larry Donnell, whom had been "starting." Davis has two catches for 12 yards through three preseason games. He's a blocker who won't be fantasy relevant in any format this season.
Aug 22 - 11:03 PM

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.
Sun, Sep 1, 2013 11:23:00 AM

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.
Fri, Mar 22, 2013 12:35:00 PM

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.
