Demario Davis visiting Browns Tuesday

The Browns are in the first months of a rather significant shift in their front office operations and their approach to free agency thus far has been a measured one that’s seen several starting players leave for other teams while Cleveland has signed a couple of lower-profile players.

The Browns are taking a look at another possible addition on Tuesday. Kimberley Martin of Newsday reports that linebacker Demario Davis is meeting with the team.

Davis was a third-round pick by the Jets in 2012 and has played in every game for the team over the last four seasons. Davis started three games as a rookie and has started all 48 contests in the last three years, although Erin Henderson took some of his playing time in 2015. Davis had 313 tackles, 6.5 sacks and an interception in those appearances for the Jets.

Karlos Dansby started 16 games for the Browns at inside linebacker last year. Craig Robertson and Christian Kirksey also made starts inside, although Robertson may be heading elsewhere as a free agent.

    One of the least instinctive players you’ll ever see.

    This is a great signing for the Browns

    From Demario’s perspective at least this will save him from having to sign with Buffalo

    This would be a huge upgrade in team speed. Davis can play the run and cover the TE. Lets get it done Browns

    Yeah, cause going to Cleveland is the Promised Land. Personally, I don’t want Davis. Only benefit in going to Buffalo is he knows Rexy ‘s scheme. Other than that he brings nothing.

    The Browns ran it through their analytical machine and realized they needed an LB.

    I’m getting too old for Truckstop Jimmy & Dee to re-invent football.

    At least I have the memories of Otto Graham, Jim Brown, and the Browns last championship. I guess that it’ll be the last one I see.

    As a Jets fan I will say

    Davis is…uh…not that good

    fast yes

    gets fooled easily on who he is suppose to cover out of the backfield? yes, all the time.

    With so many stars on defense, Davis was the ones offense would pick on, and they would often be successful.

    Or rather, playing with stars at defensive line and cornerback, he could still give up many big plays. Not great.

    Yeah, ESPN had a great story on him.

    Chris Kirksey was drafted because Craig Robertson wasn’t great in coverage, but he must’ve worked at it because Robertson really improved in coverage last year. Nobody on the Browns roster can stop the run though, so if he can, pay the man and use him on early downs.

    Davis sucks at covering rb’s almost every time an rb scored it was his fault.
