The Browns continue to search the market for a starting tight end. After missing out on Jared Cook and Dustin Keller, the Browns were said to be interested in Fred Davis, but Davis has not signed anywhere and there is little talk of him anymore.
Today Adam Schefter tweeted that the Browns have a visit scheduled with former Bears TE Kellen Davis-

Davis (27) has not missed a game in his five year career. He became the Bears regular starter in 2011. Over those two seasons as a starter, he has 37 receptions for 435 yards and 7 touchdowns.
The NFL Network’s Gregg Rosenthal ranked the tight ends available in free agency this year. Davis ranked 17th. Gary Barnidge did not crack the rankings in case you were wondering. Ben Watson was 9th.
In other free agency news, the Carolina Panthers re-signed CB Captain Munnerlyn, who was thought to be a possibility for the Browns. Still no word on CB Brent Grimes, who the Browns reportedly had in for a visit. Grimes was the top ranked CB available this off-season according to the NFL Network.
