The Jets have signed TE Kellen Davis to a one-year deal, according to Pro Football Talk.
Davis' contract is for the league minimum, according to NJ.com's Dom Cosentino. His cap hit will be $600,000.
Davis, 30, had three receptions for 18 yards for the Jets last season while playing all 16 games.
2015 was Davis' first season with the Jets. He played with the Seahawks in 2013 after playing for the Bears from 2009 to 2012.
So far, it doesn't look like the Jets have many plans on how they utilize their tight ends in 2016. Of course, Jeff Cumberland is gone, but it wasn't as if Cumberland saw much time on the field in 2015 anyway. The Jets have brought back Davis and Zach Sudfeld to go with Jace Amaro ... and that might be the extent of any changes as the position might remain de-emphasized to the four receiver sets the Jets routinely ran in 2015.
From the draft prospects, the Jets were rumored to be very interested in Nick Vannett during the Ohio State pro day. That is certainly something to keep an eye on but otherwise this draft class is not very strong at the tight end position, so expect more of the same from the Jets at the position in 2016.
