The Buffalo Bills agreed with free-agent cornerback Vontae Davis on Monday to a one-year deal, per the team (via ESPN.)

Davis announced his decision in a simple tweet - #billsmafia - Monday evening after visiting several teams over the past two weeks. The former Pro Bowler made additional free-agent visits with the San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins.

Before he was released, Davis said he felt disrespected when the Colts left him behind. He said he hadn't played well in 2017 because he was still dealing with the groin injury he suffered against Pittsburgh in the third preseason game, which caused him to miss the first three weeks of the regular season.

Davis was medically cleared this month after recovering from core injury surgery that was performed in late 2017.

The Bills' signing of Davis means starting cornerback E.J. Gaines will be allowed to move on as an unrestricted free agent March 14.

The 29-year-old was released by the Indianapolis Colts on Nov. 9 after he found additional medical opinions and opted to have season-ending surgery.
