Jacksonville Jaguars Make Surprising Decision At Wide Receiver

The Jacksonville Jaguars were among the first teams to kick off the 2023 National Football League offseason by signing center Mitch Morse after his release from the Buffalo Bills. Now, the team has added another former Buffalo Bills player, but this time, it will cost a pretty penny. The team has agreed to terms with Bills wide receiver Gabe Davis on a three-year contract worth $39 million.



Jaguars Improve Receiving Room Adding Gabe Davis


Gabe Davis will join the Jacksonville Jaguars after earning roughly $13 million per year with an $11 million signing bonus. Davis is arguably the top wide receiver in the open market besides Tee Higgins, who requested a trade out of Cincinnati. This signing is very similar to the last two offseason deals, which saw receiver Calvin Ridley traded to Duval County ahead of the 2023 season, and the big signing of receiver Christian Kirk in spring 2022.


After sending a lot of money towards Davis, the Florida team expects a lot from the 24-year-old who has yet to hit 1,000 receiving yards in a season since being drafted out of UCF in 2020. After barely racking up over the thousand-yard mark in his first two seasons, Davis had his best season in 2022 when he had 93 receptions for 836 receiving yards and tied a career-high seven touchdowns.


Jags Hope Davis Can Step Up In Lead Role


While Davis only had 746 receiving yards last season, he had a few notable games. Against the Jaguars this season, he caught six passes for 100 yards and a touchdown, which likely influenced the team to sign him. Davis also had 130 yards on four catches in a 24-22 late-season win over the Chargers.


Gabe Davis has crossed 500 yards every season in his career and has seven touchdowns in three out of four seasons with Buffalo as a number-two receiver to Stefon Diggs. But the Jaguars should expect him to step up and form an elite duo with Christian Kirk. Both receivers make over $13 million per year on their current deals. With Calvin Ridley likely signing elsewhere, the Jags hope he has more of an impact than Ridley did.


Probably the most convincing part of his tape was the 2021 postseason with Buffalo. Davis had eight receptions for 201 yards and four touchdowns in a 42-36 loss to Kansas City. He looked like a true number-one receiver, and if Jacksonville gets that production, it will really pay off.
