Davis (elbow) visited the Browns on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
After spending the first five seasons of his career with the Bears, Davis is on the verge of joining his sixth organization in as many years, three of which he's played for. The Browns were actually one of them, rostering the tight end during the 2013 offseason and preseason before axing him just before the start of the regular season. Since leaving Cleveland, he's been available for 45 games, starting 20, with the Seahawks, Lions, and Jets over the last four seasons, yet he's managed a measly six receptions (on 19 targets) for 50 yards and two touchdowns. In 2016, he was unable to haul in his only target before landing on IR with an elbow injury, so he's clearly reaching the end of the line as a professional.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Davis will compete with Zach Sudfeld for the No. 2 tight end spot behind Jace Amaro, but with wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker likely dominating the targets in the passing game, and with running backs Matt Forte and Bilal Powell also involved, there's fairly little upside for Davis' fantasy production.
Given he makes the final roster, Davis will provide depth at tight end behind Jeff Cumberland and Jace Amaro. Davis was active for six games last season with the Lions and did not catch a pass on three targets.
It’s easy to write off Davis after only 18 catches for 206 yards last season as Chicago’s starting tight end, but his problems stemmed from Mike Martz’s tight-end-unfriendly system and not having a full season with Jay Cutler at quarterback. With Martz out of town and Cutler healthy, the 26-year-old should see a bigger role in the offense. Davis displayed his upside with five touchdowns even though he wasn’t a major part of the passing game. That could change this season. The addition of Brandon Marshall could help Davis get open underneath or in the middle of the field, and even though the Bears drafted tight end Evan Rodriguez, Davis is expected to be the top tight-end target rather than the small (6-1, 240) rookie. Keep an eye on Davis’ progress in training camp and that of Chicago’s new offensive system, which might incorporate the tight end much more than Martz did.
With the departure of Greg Olsen, Davis now has the chance to become the Bears' starting tight end. Though in Mike Martz's tight end unfriendly scheme there isn't much fantasy excitement coming his way. Replicating Olsen's 41 catches for 404 yards in 2010 would be difficult to say the least.
Davis, a fifth-round pick in the 2008 draft, won't have a fantasy impact this season as Chicago's third- or fourth-string tight end. Davis caught nine passes for 75 yards and two touchdowns in 2009, and is unlikely to improve much on those numbers this year.
Davis is a talented pass catching tight end, but he's simply stuck on the wrong team with Greg Olsen and Desmond Clark in front of him. He'll compete with Michael Gaines for the third tight end job.
The Bears selected Davis in the fifth round of the draft and he'll provide nothing more than depth behind Greg Olson and Desmond Clark this season.
