  • Patriots Trade For Andre Davis

    For an undisclosed pick

    Seems like a curious move, considering the Patriots already have a bazillion receivers in camp.


    Browns send Andre' Davis to Patriots

    By TOM WITHERS, AP Sports Writer
    August 22, 2005
    CLEVELAND (AP) -- Wide receiver Andre' Davis was traded to the New England Patriots by the Cleveland Browns for an undisclosed draft pick Monday.

    Davis, who has been mentioned in trade talks for several months, became expendable after the Browns drafted rookie Braylon Edwards, and Antonio Bryant and Dennis Northcutt both emerged during training camp.

    Davis had also lost his job as the club's No. 1 kick returner to rookie Joshua Cribbs.


    The 26-year-old Davis was already in New England when the Patriots announced the deal.

    Last week, the Browns gave Davis and his agent, Kennard McGuire, permission to seek a trade. The Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks also expressed interest in Davis.

    McGuire didn't immediately return a phone message.

    Davis was selected in the second round (No. 47 overall) of the 2002 draft by former Browns coach Butch Davis, who thought the former Virginia Tech track star's speed would open things up for Cleveland's offense.

    However, injuries have slowed Davis' development.

    Because of a nagging toe injury, he started only seven games and had 16 receptions for 416 yards and two touchdowns last season. One of those TDs was a 99-yarder from Jeff Garcia, the longest pass play in Browns history.

    Davis' days seemed numbered in Cleveland when first-year Browns coach Romeo Crennel said the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder was having ``an average camp.''

    Davis, who is eligible for free agency next year, got off to a strong start as a rookie with Cleveland. He scored a TD in his first three games, becoming just the sixth rookie since 1970 to begin his career that way.

    In 2003, Davis had 40 catches for 576 yards and five TDs.

    This move also raised my eyebrows.

      It never hurts to have more depth. I'd like to know what kind of draft pick the Pats gave up for him.

        How is Terrell doing?

        Maybe he isn't meeting expectations and they feel they need another body??

          ESPN Radio said it was a 5th. Not bad, if Davis can stay healthy.

          Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

            I've heard he's looked good in practices, but I don't think he's dressed for either game yet.

              I have no idea. The CIA should be as tight-lipped with information as the Patriots front office.

                I'd think I'd prefer that over the weekly pack of lies that the Rams tell.
