KELLEN DAVIS IS IN TOWN

Free agent tight end Kellen Davis is set to visit three teams.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, the Dallas Cowboys and the Cininncati Bengals. We’re also hearing that the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins have requested a visit from Davis.

With so much interest from other teams – it’s hard to imagine the Steelers signing him.

But they could really use him.

Current backup tight end Weslye Saunders will be serving a four game suspenison at the start of the regular season.

The Steelers like Saunders, but with David Johnson operating mainly as the teams fullback, they need to get another tight end on the roster.

Davis is a good receiving threat but not the best blocker on the market. He attended Michigan State University prior to being drafted by the Bears in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He has amassed 300 yards on 28 receptions with a 10 yard average during his four seasons in the NFL.

Should the Steelers sign Davis, it would present an interesting dilemma at the position once Saunders returns to the team.

Our best guess is that Saunders would resume his role as the number two option while Davis inherted three tight sets from David Johnson – with Johnson retaining his duties as fullback.
