New York Giants sign tight end Kellen Davis


The New York Giants continued their free-agent shopping spree Friday, adding former Seattle Seahawks tight end Kellen Davis.

The 6-foot-7, 265-pound tight end has appeared in 95 regular-season games with 39 starts. Very much a blocking tight end (but definitely a good one), Davis has caught just 50 passes for 561 yards and 12 touchdowns during his six-year NFL career.

The 28-year-old will not address a team need for a receiving tight end, but he will help bolster the Giants’ pass protection, which has been a major focus this offseason.

Davis was a fifth-round selection by the Chicago Bears in 2008 out of Michigan State. He is now the fourth tight end on the Giants’ roster, alongside Adrien Robinson, Larry Donnell and Daniel Fells.
