2013 NFL Free Agency: Cleveland Browns Sign Tight End Kellen Davis

Andy Lyons

The signing of Davis marks the sixth outside free agent the Browns have signed during their hot start in the new league year.

The Cleveland Browns were rumored to be big players in this years' free agency period, and they have not disappointed. Through the first 11 days of the new league year, the team has already signed six outside free agents as well as another one of their own. They are like the bizarre-o version of the Cincinnati Bengals--tons of cap space, and a reckless abandon to spend it all.

Their latest signing is in the form of former Bears TE Kellen Davis, who inked a one-year deal with the Browns. The Browns were said to be in the market for a new tight end and they've now gone out and grabbed two of them. As it stands, they now have five tight ends on their roster, but given the heavy use of TE's in Rob Chudzinski's offensive scheme, there is still a chance that they add another.

Davis, who spent a total of five years with the Bears, will most likely be used as a blocking tight end. He has only accumulated 47 career catches over 35 games started, so he won't be challenging incumbent Cameron Jordan for his role in the passing game anytime soon. Recently, it was made public knowledge that the Bengals were interested in Davis' services as well.

The Browns are certainly a team on the rise, but it remains to be seen how well their busy free agency strategy will pay off for them in the long run.
