Jets sign former Lions TE Kellen Davis

One of the elements the New York Jets lacked last season was a true blocking tight end. Now they have one. On Wednesday, they signed former Detroit Lions tight end Kellen Davis to a one-year contract, according to a league source. The 29-year-old Davis, joining his sixth team in nine years, will join a tight-end group that includes Jace Amaro, Jeff Cumberland and Zach Sudfeld, all of whom are better receivers than blockers. Davis has only 50 career receptions -- only three over the last two seasons -- so we're not talking about a player who will be featured in the passing game.
