New York Giants Sign TE Kellen Davis and WR Travis Harvey: The New York Giants have announced that they have officially signed unrestricted free agent tight end Kellen Davis (Seattle Seahawks) and street free agent wide receiver Travis Harvey (ex-Tennessee Titans). Davis’ deal is reportedly a 1-year contract. He is 28 years old. Davis is the 14th veteran unrestricted free agent the Giants have signed this offseason.
BBI Scouting Report on Davis:
The Giants signed Kellen Davis as an unrestricted free agent from the Seattle Seahawks in April 2014. Davis was originally drafted in the 5th round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. Davis played five seasons with Chicago before signing with Seattle in 2013. In six seasons, Davis has played in 95 regular-season games (only missing one contest) with 39 starts. He only has 50 catches for 561 yards in his career but 12 of those catches have gone for touchdowns. Davis only had three catches last season for Seattle as their #3 tight end. Davis has good size. He is more of a blocking-type tight end than receiver.
BBI Scouting Report on Harvey:
The Giants signed Travis Harvey as a street free agent in April 2014. Harvey was originally signed by the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2013 NFL Draft. The Titans waived him in July and he did not play football in 2013. Harvey is tall, thin receiver with good speed, quickness, and hands. However, he is very raw and needs a lot of development.
