Vontae Davis visited with the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, but he didn’t leave with a deal. That remained true on Friday as his visits continued.

I posted an article Thursday about Vontae Davis‘ visit with the Buffalo Bills. A great meeting could have meant Bills fans waking up to news about his new contract.

Instead, Davis continues to visit other teams.

The two-time Pro Bowler took another visit Friday, right down I-90 with a team that owns an insane amount of cap space.

As Adam Schefter says, the visits will continue next week.

This makes perfect sense for both Davis and NFL teams interested in his services. Davis wants to pursue all potential options, while teams don’t want to rush into a contract with a player fresh off surgery. Davis is eligible to sign right away, but teams may want to hold off until free agency begins to see where rosters stand before the draft.

There may be a team that falls in love with Davis and signs him right away, but that team isn’t the Bills.

The Bills have to think about E.J. Gaines‘ impending free agency, which is likely why Davis was brought in. If the team doesn’t plan to re-sign Gaines, getting a replacement signed before free agency even begins would solve that impending void.

This slow period between now and free agency puts Davis in the spotlight because of his situation, but rumblings about other free agents should hit the airwaves soon. Until then, we can track Davis’ every move via social media and occupy the time that way. Well, at least until the combine gets underway.
