No, not that Davis.... The Cleveland Browns have signed veteran tight end Kellen Davis to a one-year deal. A fifth round pick in the 2008 NFL draft, Davis had spent his entire career with the Chicago Bears. Davis started 30 games over the past two seasons, but combined for only 37 catches for 435 yards.
Good news and bad news about this signing. The good news, this almost assures that the Redskins will be bringing Fred Davis back for the 2013 season. The bad news, did Cleveland like the potential of having Kellen better than Fred? The tight end position figures to be prominent in new Browns coach Rob Chudzinski's offense. New Offensive Coordinator Norv Turner is reportedly excited about the potential Jordan Cameron brings to the offense.
Cleveland recently signed veteran tight end Gary Barnidge (Carolina), but lost last year's starter, Ben Watson, who signed with New Orleans in free agency. Cameron is projected as Cleveland's starter and will be entering his third season this Fall. Cameron was a fourth round pick in 2011 out of USC. Ironically, Cameron was recruited by the Trojans as the eventual replacement for the departing Fred Davis in 2008.
