Meet New York Jets Tight End Kellen Davis

By Alan Schechter

The Jets made one more signing during the free agent process that went a bit under the radar screen. The Jets added depth to the tight end position, signing seven-year veteran tight end Kellen Davis.

Take a look at Davis’ career stats, spanning a career that saw Davis in Chicago, Detroit and Seattle:

Receiving & Rushing

Davis’ peak season was in 2011, when he started 15 games, catching 18 passes for 206 yards and five touchdowns.  The most important element to notice in Davis’ stats is his touchdown efficiency.  Out of 50 receptions for Davis, 12 have been good for touchdowns.  That’s a pretty reliable target down by the goal line if you ask me.

Davis will likely compete with Jeff Cumberland for the second tight end spot on the Jets, as the starting spot is pretty well in hand with Jace Amaro.  Davis can add depth as a guy that can score in the red zone.  If nothing else, Davis will provide competition at the position, which will make all of the other players better.
