Date:

Jets TE Kellen Davis underwent surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his thumb and will be sidelined until training camp.

Davis injured the thumb recently at OTAs. He appeared in all 16 games last season, making nine starts, and appears to be the favorite to handle those duties again as an in-line blocker. It won't translate to counting stats.

Jets re-signed TE Kellen Davis to a one-year contract.

Davis played 445 snaps as a blocker last season, catching only three passes. His 2016 should unfold in a similar fashion.

Jets signed TE Kellen Davis, formerly of the Lions, to a one-year, $950,000 contract.

Davis was brought on for blocking purposes. He won't take any targets away from Jace Amaro or Jeff Cumberland. When the roster trims down to 53 players at the end of training camp, there's a chance Davis won't be on it.

Free agent TE Kellen Davis will visit the Jets.

Davis isn't much of a receiver, but his towering size (6'7/265) has made him a useful blocker in the past. Even if the Jets sign him, he'd be no lock to make it out of camp. Jace Amaro should be the Jets' featured tight end.

Lions re-signed TE Kellen Davis.

Davis is needed after Joe Fauria aggravated his left ankle injury against the Bucs.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
