The Seattle Seahawks added 6-foot-7, 265-pound, 27-year-old tight end Kellen Davis to its 53-man roster this week. Davis was cut by the Cleveland Browns the first week of September. Head Coach Pete Carroll said they anticipated adding a third tight end to the roster and after Luke Willson came away a little "banged up" against the Carolina Panthers last Sunday, it became more immediately urgent to add some depth at the position. To make room, the team released linebacker Allen Bradford.
Davis played football for Michigan State and was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the fifth round of the 2008 Draft. While in Chicago, the physical tight end played behind the Bears' 2007 first round draft pick Greg Olsen until Olsen was traded to the Panthers in 2011. Davis had 18 receptions for 206 yards and five touchdowns as the starter in 2011.
Davis put up similar numbers for the Bears in 2012 (19 receptions, 229 yards, 2 TD's) and was released by the team this year, back in March and picked up almost immediately by the Browns.
While at Michigan State, Davis had 60 receptions for 789 yards and 9 touchdowns while playing offense, defense, and special teams.
