According to a report from Pro Football Talk, the Giants have signed veteran tight end Kellen Davis to a one-year deal, dollar figure undisclosed. Davis, 28, will give the Jints a security blanket blocker at the position heading into the draft, joining current roster youngsters Adrien Robinson and Larry Donnell.
The 6’7 260 pound Davis played 172 snaps for Seattle last season, functioning as a run blocker on 119 of them. He earned a Pro Football Focus run block grade of -5.3, which is not exactly endearing for a “specialist”. He was a non-factor as a receiving threat, catching three passes on three total targets. In 2012 for Chicago he caught 19 of his 42 targets and dropped eight passes.
Needless to say, tight end will still be a top priority between May 8th and May 10th at Radio City Music Hall.
