Bills Entering Hunt for Free Agent TE Fred Davis

Free agent tight end Fred Davis will have a free agent visit with the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday, according to Adam Schefter.

Davis is one of the better free agents available and the only question remaining is whether or not he can heal from a torn ACL that dogged him in 2012.

With new head coach Doug Marrone, the Bills figure to feature the tight end position a lot more prominently than they did with Chan Gailey, whose spread attack had no use for Y-receivers.

Though Buffalo has no real solution at quarterback on the roster, the team would be well-suited to bring in weapons for a rookie signal caller to have success with. Davis would be a great facilitator, as he is long and lean but also tough enough to make catches over the middle.

It’s reasonable to count on a 700-yard, three touchdown season from a healthy Davis, so having that safety valve could end up being invaluable for a rookie quarterback like Tyler Wilson in the latter’s first year with Buffalo.

The Browns and Redskins are also in the hunt for Davis’ services, but this latest development shows that Buffalo is gaining some ground in talks.
