Former Bills WR Gabe Davis agrees to terms on three-year deal with Jaguars

The Buffalo Bills are going into a crucial offseason for the franchise as they have to find a way to get under the salary cap while keeping the players that will help them get over the hump next season. As Buffalo progresses through this offseason, it looks like they will be vying for the Super Bowl trophy without one of their better wide receivers over the past few years.

According to various reports, former Bills receiver Gabe Davis will be signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars. There were some rumors over the course of the past year that Davis could be heading elsewhere if he were able to get paid a lot more than Buffalo would be willing/able to pay him.

Per reports, Davis will be signing a three-year, $39 million deal with the Jaguars that includes incentives that could bring the total contract value up to $50 million. For Davis to get a contract worth at least $13 million per season to presumably be the #2 wide receiver for another team could mean that Buffalo may have miscalculated his value on the open market, but that determination also depends on what Buffalo was able to offer him to stay.

In his four seasons with the Bills after being selected with a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft out of Central Florida, Davis caught 163 of 299 passes for 2,730 yards (16.7 yards per reception) and 27 touchdowns. His best season came in the 2022 campaign when he posted 48 receptions for 836 yards (17.4 Y/R) and seven touchdowns, including a 98-yard touchdown reception in Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
