Kellen Davis done in New York

It’s still unclear who’ll emerge as the top tight end for the Giants this year.  It’s becoming more clear who won’t.

Kellen Davis is the latest to be release, joining Dickensian antagonist Xavier Grimble as former Giants tight ends.  Davis had three catches for 12 yards in five preseason games.  He previously has played for the Bears from 2008 through 2012 before winning a Super Bowl ring with the Seahawks in 2013.

The Giants list Larry Donnell and Daniel Fells as the backup.  Adrien Robinson is the third tight end, for now.

Presumably, G.M. Jerry Reese and company will be watching the wire today for potential upgrades at the position, given that the three remaining players have scant NFL experience.

    Can’t believe people are still willing to pay this guy to pretend to be an NFL player.

    And he didn’t win a SB ring…His Seahawks teammates won it for him.

    I’ve watched this guy since he was a rookie. At one point about 2 or 3 seasons in I thought he was gonna break out but it just never happened. And by the time the succession of idiot OCs the Bears hired were through with him, he was a worse player as a vested veteran than when he came out of college.

    He is as impressive a physical specimen as you will ever see at the position and has never been a problem off the field… but he cannot play a lick of football.

    Reese called Robinson the JPP of tight ends. What he meant is that he’s the 2013 version of JPP, injured and ineffective.

    He won’t be missed.Probably will be out of the league unless some team puts him on practice squad.

    He’s not practice squad eligible. He’ll make a helluva bouncer or bodyguard for someone, though.
