Former Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts cornerback Vontae Davis concluded his league-wide tour on Monday by announcing a new agreement with the Buffalo Bills. Davis, Miami’s 2009 first-round draft pick, was released earlier this offseason by the Colts after an injury filled season with drama swirling about just how injured the veteran was.
Davis played three seasons with the Dolphins before the team traded him to the Colts, in large part because of his inconsistent play. He ultimately found his form, earning two Pro Bowl berths with the Colts, but fell out of favor this year. He was free to sign with a new team because he was released by the Colts.
David announced the signing on Twitter, tweeting #BillsMafia.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the contract is a one-year deal.
Davis also posted a picture of the Bills’ field on his Instagram account:
Davis has played in 120 career games, with 112 starts, recording 408 tackles, 22 interceptions with one touchdown, 106 passes defensed, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and two sacks. He played just five games last year.
The Bills have also officially announced the signing.
