Browns sign TE Davis, CB Owens to 1-year deals

The Cleveland Browns have signed free agent tight end Kellen

Davis and cornerback Chris Owens to one-year contracts.

Both players will give the club depth at two thin positions, and

it’s possible one or both of them could earn starting jobs.

Last week, Browns CEO Joe Banner said the team would not sign

anyone bigger than recent additions Paul Kruger or Desmond Bryant,

but intended to remain active in free agency.

The 6-foot-7, 265-pound Davis set career-highs with 19

receptions for 229 yards and two touchdowns for Chicago last

season. He has made 35 career starts and played in 80 NFL


Owens made one start last season for Atlanta and played in 13

games. He recorded 17 tackles and forced a fumble for the Falcons,

who allowed the fewest passing TDs in the league (14).
