Former Indianapolis Colts cornerback Vontae Davis has reportedly agreed to sign a 1-year deal with the Buffalo Bills. Davis let the cat out of the bag a couple hours ago via his Twitter account, and was later confirmed by the Bills, after a short tour of a few different teams.

Davis met with 5 teams in total including his former team, the Miami Dolphins. Davis was released by the Colts in early November after being benched in favor of Pierre Desir and didn’t even travel with the team for their following game in Houston.

Davis was a huge addition to the Colts once he came over in 2012 to give the team’s secondary a legitimate lockdown defensive back. Davis’ best two seasons in Indy were the 2014-15 seasons in which he tallied 8 interceptions, 43 passes defensed and gave the Colts hope through some very bad defenses.

Davis fell hard and fast following the 2015 season showing that his coverage abilities were getting limited and was finding it difficult to stay healthy, though he did play through most of them which likely led to some of his struggles. Davis now joins a Bills organization following groin surgery which was part of some of the contention in his final days with the Colts.

The Bills have Tre’Davious White who was second in the ROY voting, but another piece of their secondary will be hitting free agency in E.J. Gaines who will be getting some real play in the weeks to come.
