As expected, this is a low-risk contract for the Patriots as Davis is coming off a year-long suspension. The Patriots are well-stocked on the tight end depth chart with Rob Gronkowski, Scott Chandler, Michael Hoomanawanui, Tim Wright and sixth-round draft choice AJ Derby. With Derby potentially still not ready to participate because of a prior knee injury, Davis fills in another layer on the depth chart as a "move"-type option with limited financial impact on the team's cash flow/salary cap.
