Former Seahawk Davis signs with Giants

While we wait for the Pete Carroll press conference at the VMAC, we’ll pass along the news that former Seahawk tight end Kellen Davis has signed what is reported to be a one-year deal with the New York Giants.

That leaves just two of Seattle’s free agents off its 2013 team who have yet to either re-sign with the Seahawks or sign with new teams — fullback Michael Robinson and linebacker/end O’Brien Schofield.

Schofield, recall, had agreed to a deal with the Giants before it was reneged when the team had concerns over his knee.

With the Giants, Davis will join another former Seahawk, Walter Thurmond.

Davis had a brief career as a Seahawk, signed one game into last season when Seattle decided to add another tight end after the experiment of using OT Mike Person as another tight end didn’t work. Davis caught three passes for 22 yards, including a 1-yard TD in the win at Arizona.

Davis was inactive for the Super Bowl when the Seahawks used OL Alvin Bailey in a role as a blocking tight end.

Seattle appears pretty well-stocked at tight end with the top two from last season, Zach Miller and Luke Willson, returning, as well as Anthony McCoy, who missed last season with a knee injury but recently was re-signed for another season. Seattle also has signed free agent Travis Beckum and also returns Cooper Helfet, who spent last season on the practice squad.
