Buffalo Bills Should Sign Fred Davis Immediately
The Buffalo Bills are entering the 2013 NFL season as one of the most maligned teams in the league. Starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been let go after getting a five-year deal with the team in 2011, and the Bills have fought an uphill battle this entire off-season.
Now, the team is in talks to acquire a free agent tight end that has not garnered the attention that other players of his caliber have. Fred Davis of the Washington Redskins had a great season two years ago with 796 yards and three touchdowns in just 12 games. Jared Cook was the best tight end on the free agent market this off-season and was awarded a four-year deal from the St. Louis Rams worth of $38.5 million.
Taking a look at the numbers, Davis has played in just 19 games over the last two seasons and still rivals Cook’s production in 29 games. Davis has averaged 59 yards a game over the last two seasons while Cook averages a mere 44. The “awful quarterback” argument is also not valid, as Davis played with Rex Grossman prior to the team drafting Robert Griffin III.
Davis gained a lot of experience with RG3 last season and although it was only seven games, his ability to thrive with a rookie quarterback could be something that the Bills value tremendously — the team has the eighth overall pick this Spring and could very well select a quarterback.
At the end of the day, the Bills should jump at Davis while they have the chance as he would make any rookie’s transition to the NFL smoother and give the Bills an added weapon on the offensive side of the ball.
