It’s spring cleaning time in the NFL.  And in with the new means out with the old.

For the Bears, the arrival of free-agent tight end Martellus Bennett means that tight end Kellen Davis is no longer needed.

Per a league source, Davis has been cut.

The five-year veteran has been a full-time starter the past two seasons.  But he had been plagued by drops, and now he has been dropped.

He was due to earn a base salary of $2.4 million salary in 2013.  He now becomes an unrestricted free agent.

  1. How many times are we going to read about promising recievers and tight ends who “are plagued by drops”?

    This drives me nuts. Holding on to the ball is the key to the position, and so many guys making a living at the position stink at it.

    It’s like NBA players shooting 50% from the free throw line. Why would you go through your whole career with such a glaring hole in your game?

    Where is the professional pride? Why would they accept this weakness? Say what you want about Tiki Barber, but he got sick and tired of his fumbling reputation and he took care of it.

    It’s not rocket science, figure out what you are doing wrong and fix it. You’re supposed to be the best in the world at what you do, for god’s sake.

  2. Finally!!! But I’m sure other teams will sweep him up quickly. Who doesn’t want a brick-handed TE that falls down on half of his routes?

  3. Eagles might sign him for the scout team. He isnt skilled enough to be one of our backup TEs.

  4. Well at least they got rid of the guy who drops a lot a passes and replaced him with a guy that… Well, at least they still have Brandon Marshall.

  5. ‘Bout damn time…And now, some other team will look at his size and say, ‘We can fix him!’

    They will be disappointed.

  6. if anyone signs this clown for more than the league min. then that gm should lose his job immediately. this guy had every chance to prove himself and failed miserably. when you get cut by a team as desperate for a tight as the bears were then you know you suck! in the end they only asked the biggest guy on the field(davis) to be a red zone receiver and he could not do that. just a pitiful excuse of a footbal player.

  7. I had hopes a few years ago that he would amount to something. Oh, he amounted to something alright, and it rhymes with a bile of spit.

    Good riddance!

  8. Really thought he would turn into a valuable weapon, but “Old Stone Hands” won’t be missed.
