Add another tight end to the list of names Mike Lombardi and Joe Banner are targeting to bring to Cleveland. Albert Breer of the NFL Network is reporting the Browns are showing interest in former Bears tight end, Kellen Davis. Davis has additionally drawn interest from the Saints, Stealers, and Bengals.
The 6′ 7″ 27 year old was released by the Bears following their signing of Marcellus Bennet earlier in the week. Davis only managed to catch 37 passes for 435 yards and 6 touchdowns over his last two seasons in Chicago. Chicago general manager Phil Emery acknowledged Davis had “a rough season” last year that was plagued with drops and failed expectations after signing a two year deal before the season.
With former Oakland tight end Brandon Myers reportedly agreeing to terms with the Giants on Saturday, the options of playmakeers at the tight end spot is very limited. The top names remaining on the market are Baltimore’s Dennis Pitta (second round tender), and Fred Davis who the Browns have been linked to. Davis is coming off a torn Achilles tendon last year with Washington.
