Unless the Browns add another tight end, they will have Jordan Cameron as their starter, and Gary Barnidge and Brad Smelley as their backups.

According to Pro Football Talk, the Cleveland Browns have released tight end Kellen Davis a day after he was named to the 53-man roster. This will likely be one of many moves the Browns make as they try to shape their roster for opening day.

Davis' departure is not a big surprise. Entering his sixth season, the Browns signed him to a relatively cheap deal this offseason with the hopes that he could be a solid blocking tight end (he was not known for his pass-catching skills). Davis seemed to fare rather poorly this preseason as a blocker, though.

Unless the Browns add another tight end, they will have Jordan Cameron as their starter, and Gary Barnidge and Brad Smelley as their backups.
