Another veteran coming to town who can help the young guys is Vontae Davis. The veteran corner has the abilities to be a perennial Pro Bowler, if he can stay healthy.
Davis came to the Bills back in February thanks to not finishing the season with an NFL team, meaning his free agency period started before the new league year. Fans were on Davis watch as he visited a few teams, but ultimately decided to sign with the Bills.
Davis has made the Pro Bowl twice and was a real threat for the Colts before dealing with injuries the past few years. He only appeared in five games for the Colts in 2017.
This move is a low-risk, high-reward decision made by Beane. If Davis doesn’t pan out, there is still Tre’Davious White, Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde roaming the secondary. The team also brought in Phillip Gaines to compete at corner.
But if Davis does stay healthy, him and White form a dynamic duo. And if opposing wide receivers get open, there is the dynamic safety duo waiting to step up.
Davis will be a player for fans to follow throughout the preseason to see if he can get back to his old ways. If he has no health issues, he slots in as a starter and a key piece on defense in Week 1.
