ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Davis had dinner in Washington, D.C. on Saturday night with Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone, general manager Buddy Nix, assistant GM Doug Whaley and a gaggle of team brass.

We haven't heard much on the Davis front in recent days, but the Bills -- silent in free agency up to now -- make plenty of sense from the angle of need after Scott Chandler tore his anterior cruciate ligament in Week 16.

Davis, of course, has injury issues of his own. He's an electrifying playmaker when healthy, but he's still on his way back from the Achilles injury that ended his 2012 season. With the relatively unknown Lee Smith as Buffalo's only viable tight end behind Chandler, Davis would give quarterback [fill-in-the-blank] an exciting target in Marrone's up-tempo offense.

UPDATE: Davis is scheduled to visit with the Bills on Wednesday, Schefter reported Sunday.
