Bills agree to terms with CB Vontae Davis

Posted Feb 26, 2018

On Monday, Buffalo agreed to terms with free agent CB Vontae Davis on a one-year contract.

The Bills took a proactive approach to what could be a position of need come next month. On Monday, Buffalo agreed to terms with free agent CB Vontae Davis on a one-year contract.

Davis, 29, had the advantage of being a free agent prior to the start of the new league year on March 14th after he was released by the Colts last November. The move by Indianapolis came after Davis decided to get season-ending groin surgery.

Buffalo hosted Davis for a free agent visit to undoubtedly check on Davis’ progress in recovering from the surgery. The cornerback also visited with four other NFL clubs (Cleveland, Miami, Oakland, San Francisco) before agreeing to terms with the Bills.

Davis (5-11, 207) played in only five games last season for the Colts, but was a starter all six years in Indianapolis (2012-2017). A former first-round pick of the Miami Dolphins (2009), Davis has 22 career interceptions and is still widely seen as a starting caliber corner on the boundary.

His only interception return for a touchdown came in his rookie season of 2009 against the Bills and QB Trent Edwards.

The Bills have three cornerbacks with expiring contracts, who are set to become free agents next month in E.J. Gaines, Leonard Johnson and Shareece Wright
