For the second time in less than a week the Bills added a former first-round draft choice to their roster signing free agent WR Craig “Buster” Davis Thursday evening. The fifth-year wideout is a former 2007 draft choice of the San Diego Chargers.
Bills GM Buddy Nix has intimate knowledge of Davis’ game having had a hand in the drafting of the LSU product five years ago. Davis found it difficult to crack the starting lineup in his time with the Chargers due in part to the talent in front of him on the depth chart and injuries.
Davis has 4.4 speed and is known as a sharp route runner. After playing 14 games as a rookie in 2007, he’s played in 12 games the last three seasons.
Despite appearing in just seven games last year, he did post career highs in receptions and receiving yards as a reserve receiver for San Diego with 21 receptions for 259 yards and a touchdown.
In four NFL seasons Davis has appeared in 26 games with 51 receptions for 558 yards and two touchdowns.
How he’ll fit into what is a very deep and talented Bills receiving corps is hard to figure at this point. Buffalo’s top four receivers (Evans, Johnson, Parrish, Nelson) have all looked sharp in the first week of training camp with
CB Cook waived
Undrafted rookie cornerback Domonic Cook was waived/injured Thursday. Should the University at Buffalo product clear waivers without being claimed, he’ll revert back to Buffalo’s roster and be placed on season-ending injured reserve.
