After working out with the team on Tuesday, the Seattle Seahawks announced that they have signed tight end Kellen Davis to a contract.
Per Pro Football Talk:
Seahawks sign TE Kellen Davis, per league source.
Why? Well, that’s a question I simply can’t answer.
Davis, who was released by the Cleveland Browns about three weeks ago, spent the first five seasons of his career with the Chicago Bears after they selected him with the 158th overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.
The Michigan State product took a while to get acclimated to the NFL game, only hauling in ten receptions during his first three seasons in the NFL, combined.
Things didn’t really get much better during Davis’ final two seasons in Chicago where he caught just under twenty balls in 2011 and 2012 each.
Ranked among the top ten high school tight end’s, Davis simply couldn’t ever harness the promise that was attached to his name. He’s expected to be the third tight end behind Zach Miller and Luke Willson for the Seahawks.
