Free agent wide receiver Gabe Davis has reached a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The deal is a 3 year deal worth up to 50 million dollars, with 11 million guaranteed at signing. The Bears were one of the first teams to offer Davis, but the Jaguars sent a competitive offer which stuck even with the Patriots making a late play for the receiver. Davis reunites with several familiar faces, including his former WR Coach in Buffalo Chad Hall.

Selected in the fourth round during the 2020 NFL Draft, the rookie from the University of Central Florida immediately made his 6’3″ presence known to the league with 39 catches for 684 yards and seven touchdowns, which is third most all-time for a Bill’s first year pass catcher. Davis became known for big game receptions and doing the high effort, dirty work that made him a beloved teammate. He was names a team captain in 2023 and had won the offseason training award twice. He famously went out to practice immediately after being drafted by the Bills, and that work ethic never left.

Davis left his mark on the Bill’s record book while he was here:

  • Davis’ 16.7 yards/reception for his Bills’ career ranks third in franchise history for players with more 160 catches.
  • He leaves the Bills with the 13th most all-time receiving yards for the team (2,730 yds)
  • His averages per season: 46 rec, 801 yards, 17.5 Y/R, 8 TD, and an Avg Depth of Target of 16.3 yards

Davis will largely be remembered for his playoff performances. In his rookie season, Davis made critical downfield catches against the Colts to push the Bills to their playoff victory in 25 years, and in 2022, he had over 100 receiving yards in a Wild Card Round victory over the Dolphins. His most memorable playoff performance, of course, came in against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round of the 2021 NFL Playoffs. Davis did everything he could to propel the Bills by becoming only the ninth wide receiver to have over 200 yards in a playoff game, and he added four dramatic touchdowns. It is inarguably the greatest game by a wide receiver in Bills’ playoff history.

Big Play Gabe!

From all of Bills Mafia, thanks, Gabe, and best of luck!
