NFL free agency rumors: Browns interested in Fred Davis


The Cleveland Browns may not be done making deals, as they're reportedly interested in signing former Washington tight end Fred Davis.

The Cleveland Browns are interested in signing tight end Fred Davis, according to a tweet from Jason La Canfora of CBS. Davis is entering free agency for the first time in his career, having spent all five of his seasons in the NFL with the Washington Redskins.

Davis has been a productive player for the Redskins, but he's coming off a torn Achilles tendon injury that ended his 2012 season after only seven games. In his abbreviated season, Davis caught 24 passes for 325 yards and a touchdown. His recovery is going well though, and the injury shouldn't have any lingering effects during the 2013 season.

The Browns used their tight end a fair amount in 2012, as Ben Watson was the team's third-leading receiver with 49 catches. Davis would be an upgrade at the position, and would give Brandon Weeden another option in the passing game.
