The Buffalo Bills will pay cornerback Vontae Davis at least $3.5 million in 2018, and maybe up to $8 million, according to a report.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Tuesday that Davis' one-year contract with the Bills includes a $5 million base salary, of which $3.5 million is guaranteed. Incentives included in the deal can push the total value to $8 million.

Davis, 29, is a two-time Pro Bowler who was released by the Colts in November. He visited the Browns, 49ers, Raiders and Dolphins before agreeing to sign the Bills. Over the last six years in Indianapolis, Davis has 13 interceptions and 65 passes defensed. A first-round pick in 2009, he spent the first three years with Miami.
Davis was ranked No. 31 on NFL Network's Top 101 free agents of 2018. He figures to replace EJ Gaines in the starting lineup. Buffalo's nickel cornerback from 2017, Leonard Johnson, is also scheduled to become a free agent in a couple of weeks.
