Davis has signed a one-year contract with the Browns, a league source tells PFT.
A 2008 fifth-round draft pick of the Bears, Davis has spent his entire five-year NFL career in Chicago and has been a starter the last two years. The Bears cut Davis and signed tight end Martellus Bennett at the start of free agency.
Davis, who had also reportedly drawn interest from the Steelers and Jets, is the second free agent tight end the Browns have signed. Cleveland previously added Gary Barnridge from the Panthers.
