Browns land Demario Davis with two-year deal

The Browns’ visit with inside linebacker Demario Davis went well enough that the team and player are planning to work together for the next two years.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Davis has agreed to a two-year deal. The former Jets linebacker stands to make $8 million in total.

Davis started every game for the Jets over the last three seasons, but saw some of his playing time go to Erin Henderson last season as he particularly struggled in pass coverage over the course of the year. He was more effective in previous seasons, though, and the Browns would appear to believe that he can get back on track in Cleveland.

Davis joins offensive lineman Alvin Bailey and linebacker Justin Tuggle as free agent additions to the Browns roster.

Davis’ arrival would seem to make Craig Robertson’s return to Cleveland unlikely. Robertson has visited the Seahawks and is expected to meet with the Saints.

  1. Generally this time of year is always exciting for Browns fans as we anticipate the possibility of having big name free agents help our team try to move forward. This year, not so much…..smh

  2. great athlete with an even better attitude. awful in coverage and a below average tackler.

  3. Demario Davis is one of those players who has all the intangibles you would ever want but he just doesn’t flash on the field. He’s kind of the opposite of a play maker.

  4. enerally this time of year is always exciting for Browns fans as we anticipate the possibility of having big name free agents help our team try to move forward. This year, not so much…..smh

    How’s that been working out for us??

  5. Can’t the Browns be praised for making an economically efficient deal?

    New Rule: Your site can’t have an article making the Giants look like desperate extreme risk takers but keep bashing the Browns for saving money.

  6. Browns fans, get used to seeing him burned in coverage on a regular basis

    RB comes out of the backfield to catch a pass? expect a big gain on davis when he totally blows it

    It was exposed on Bowles defense last year and it was ugly. There isn’t a RB in the league he can cover. Killed the Jets in some of their ugly losses.

    He is young and looks solid on paper, and has all the necessary athletic ability. But like someone said earlier, he is not a playmaker. More like a painmaker–for his own team.

  7. The best part about Browns not being active in free agency is that it means we don’t have to be subject to “burned fan” syndrome.

    That’s the thing where the fans of the team the guy left from completely buries that outgoing player because he didn’t work out for them.

    Until teams like the Patriots start loosing games with their low cost free agents and low round no name draft picks and teams like the Indianapolis Colts stop trending backward with their “spending their owners drug fund on free agents just to cut them a year later when they don’t make the playoffs let alone the superbowl they promised their fans”, no one knows how good or bad anyone is till they are actually playing with their new team and most importantly new compliment of players helping them and coaches.

    Case in point, Gary Barnidge whose career didn’t take off till he came to the Browns and Jordan Cameron who was supposedly a “HUGE LOSS” for Cleveland and major gain for Miami who mops the floors of the Dolphins locker room now.
