Free agent cornerback Vontae Davis leaves Buffalo Bills without contract

New, comments

The veteran CB is making his rounds

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

On Thursday, it was reported that former Indianapolis Colts cornerback Vontae Davis was on a free agent visit with the Buffalo Bills. This seems to just be Davis doing the rounds as he left Buffalo without a deal in place.

After leaving Buffalo, Davis spent Friday in Cleveland with the Browns according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Schefter also reported that Davis has more visits scheduled for next week, although he didn’t specify what teams will be visiting with the veteran CB.

According to NFL free agency rules, Davis doesn’t have to wait until the new league year starts to sign with a team because he was released by the Colts before the end of the 2017 campaign.

The Bills could be in the market for a new defensive back with E.J. Gaines entering free agency in a few weeks. However, Davis has battled injuries for the last two seasons and is quickly approaching his 30th birthday. Throwing big money at him could be a risky move for any team.
