The Bills have signed cornerback Vontae Davis.

His signing apparently means the Bills will not try to re-sign free agent cornerback E.J. Gaines, a player who is expected to draw some sizable offers when free agency begins March 14. However, it also means the Bills can probably scratch cornerback off their first-round draft needs list as Davis would be a solid complement to Tre’ Davious White.

Davis was hurt last preseason and he wound up playing only five games for Indianapolis. He had visited the Browns, 49ers, Raiders and Dolphins along with the Bills.
