IRVING, Texas -- With Martellus Bennett flying to visit the New York Giants, the Cowboys are not wasting time shopping for a second tight end to play alongside Jason Witten.

According to a source, the Cowboys will visit with Chicago’s Kellen Davis, and another source said the Cowboys have an interest in John Carlson, who missed last season with a shoulder injury. Carlson is visiting with Kansas City and has received interest from other teams, as well.

The Cowboys like to use two-tight end packages. Bennett was a solid blocker but went three years without a touchdown catch. He had 17 catches for 144 yards in 2011.

Davis, at 6-foot-7, 267 pounds, caught 18 passes for 206 yards with five touchdowns last season for the Bears in an offense that did not feature the tight end. He has 28 catches for 300 yards and nine touchdowns in his career.

Carlson has 137 catches for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns, but he did not play last year and was limited to 31 catches in 2010 after catching 106 passes his first two seasons.
