Former Seahawks tight end Kellen Davis signs with New York Giants

Posted Apr 4, 2014

After one year in Seattle, tight end Kellen Davis has signed with the New York Giants in free agency.

Seventh-year veteran tight end Kellen Davis, a backup for the Seahawks last season, has signed with the New York Giants in free agency the team announced today.

The 6-foot-7, 265-pound Davis played in 15 games for the Seahawks last year, making three catches for 32 yards. His lone touchdown came on a 1-yard pass from quarterback Russell Wilson in the team's 34-22 Week 7 win over the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Davis originally signed in Seattle on September 11, 2013, but did not look to figure into the Seahawks' future at the position. Tight end Anthony McCoy was re-signed this offseason after spending 2013 on injured reserve (Achilles) and with Zach MillerLuke Willson, Travis Beckum, and Cooper Helfet also on the roster, Davis was deemed expendable heading into the new year.

In New York, Davis joins a new-look Giants group that also features former Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond, who signed with the team in mid-March.
