The Giants have signed tight end Kellen Davis (Pro Football Talk).
John Fennelly, Lead WriterAnother day, another free agent signing by the Giants. Davis, 28, is a monster of a man (6’7″, 265) who will provide a veteran presence for the Giants at TE mainly as a blocker and a red zone option.
The Bears’ fifth-round selection out of Michigan State in the 2008 NFL Draft, Davis played five seasons in Chicago before catching on with the Seahawks last year.
This signing is in no way an indication the Giants will not be adding a TE through the draft. He is not the pass-catching type of TE they need for their new offense.
Davis is the sixth player from a team that played in SB XLVIII to be signed by the Giants this offseason, joining former Seahawk teammate Walter Thurmond and ex-Broncos J.D. Walton, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Robert Ayers and Trindon Holliday.
Free agent WR Travis Harvey signed by Giants
The Giants inked WR Travis Harvey, who has no NFL experience, to a contract. From the Giants:
Harvey, 6-2 and 183 pounds, was signed as a rookie free agent by the Tennessee Titans last year. He was released in training camp. In two seasons at Florida A&M, Harvey played in 12 games with 10 starts and totaled 66 receptions for 818 yards and seven touchdowns. Most of that production was in his senior year (64 catches, 808 yards, all seven scores). He did not play football as a freshman or sophomore.
