It has been quiet during the first four plus hours into free agency for the Bengals so far. They will be meeting with Aaron Ross on Thursday, a former New York Giants cornerback. The Bengals will soon meet with former Bears tight end Kellen Davis, according to a league source.

The Bengals have two free agent tight ends in Bo Scaife and Donald Lee. Scaife's season ended in late August in a preseason game against the Panthers when he hurt his shoulder. Lee, along with Colin Cochart, profiled as the backup to pro bowler Jermaine Gresham this past season. Lee, 31, caught 11 balls for 115 yards last season. If the Bengals decide to not bring Lee or Scaife back, Kellen Davis could be a possibility. Davis, 26, caught 18 passes for 206 yards last season, but he was also a viable red zone option, catching five touchdown passes. With the Bears, Davis was mainly featured as a blocker, which is typical in a Mike Martz offense. Davis would likely be a number two tight end in Dallas, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati, as the top tight ends on those respective teams are pro bowl caliber players.
