In a game where the Bills struggled to move the ball through the air, rookie Gabriel Davis was one of the lone bright spots. His highlight-reel 44-yard reception showed that he can make difficult catches in contested situations and can be a dependable, field-stretching target for Josh Allen.

With Brown now on the IR, Davis has a chance to step up. The story also went on to say the Bills could save over $8 million by releasing Brown (who turns 31 in April) in the offseason, one that’s expected to be cap-strapped. The only reason they would do that is if they knew they had a solid X-receiver player to replace Brown, which is where Davis comes into play.
