|The Bears 5th round pick in the 2008 draft, Davis was buried on the bench behind Greg Olsen and Desmond Clark for the first three years. Given his first chance to start following Olsenís trade to Carolina, Davis was barely used, a victim of then offensive coordinator Mike Martzí offensive system. Despite playing in all 16 games, Davis was targeted just 34 times, catching 18 passes for 206 yards and a respectable five touchdowns, proving to be a solid red zone threat with four touchdowns from inside the 10-yard line. Unfortunately for Davis, the Bears traded for Brandon Marshall in the offseason and he figures to assume the role of Chicagoís top threat from in close. While new offensive coordinator Mike Tice may be fond of throwing to the tight end, Davis doesnít figure to be worth drafting in 2012. Check him out on the waiver wire provided he isnít beaten out of his starting position by rookie Evan Rodriguez.
|Giants may opt for committee at tight end -- Mon Jun 23 3:20 pm --|
Adrien Robinson yet to separate from pack
|The Giants didn't make a splash at the tight end position this offseason, but GM Jerry Reese has found plenty of success with tight ends who aren't exactly household names coming out of college. He's working with a platoon of Daniel Fells, Xavier Grimble, Larry Donnell, Adrien Robinson and Kellen Davis this offseason. The coaching staff alternated them throughout the spring with no one tight end taking a majority of the reps.
"I think the jury is still out on who the No. 1 tight end is, I think it'll probably be tight end by committee," he said on WFAN this afternoon. (Newark Star-Ledger)|
FF Today's Take: Reese mentioned Donnell and Robinson by name as "a couple of young guys who have had some injury stuff going on with them. ... We expect those two young guys to come on, and they can be dynamic if we can get them going." Reese also hinted he could look at free agents. Dustin Keller and Jermichael Finley - each of whom are coming off serious injuries - are the best remaining options that remain unsigned.
