Vontae Davis couldn't shake the good vibes he got in Buffalo.

The Bills were the first team Davis visited on his recent free-agent tour that also included stops in Cleveland, San Francisco, Oakland and Miami. After traversing the country, he concluded that the first stop on his journey was the best.

"As I went on my visits and I kind of evaluated things, it felt like I just belonged in Buffalo because how everybody made me feel," Davis said Friday, speaking on a conference call with the Western New York media. "I feel like they run that organization with a lot of integrity. They respect their players. I just felt like it was the place for me to be. Coach McDermott, those guys, they made me feel very welcome when I went on the visit. I liked the facility. Even though Buffalo was one of my first visits, as I evaluated things, it seemed like it just stuck with me throughout all my visits, Buffalo and their whole organization. It made a huge impression on me."

Davis, 29, was impressed with how the Buffalo secondary performed last season. Despite featuring four brand-new starters, the Bills finished sixth in the NFL in interceptions and seventh in passes defended.

"I mean, it seemed like those guys played forever together," Davis said. "That was impressive for them to play just one year together, the production they had. It was very intriguing because all those guys, they're very young players. I believe it was the perfect fit for me at this point in my career. I think I can just help those guys as far as my leadership and being able to also play with a group of talented young guys that I feel are very proven in this league."

Davis signed a one-year contract with the Bills that has a $4.375 million cap hit, according to ESPN, but could be worth more based on incentives.
