Reports: Jaguars to land WR Gabe Davis, C Mitch Morse


Wide receiver Gabe Davis, center Mitch Morse and safety Darnell Savage agreed to deals with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, according to reports.

Davis agreed on Monday to a three-year, $39 million deal worth up to $50 million, according to reports, but he cannot officially sign until Wednesday, the first day of the 2024 league year.

Morse signed a two-year deal worth $10.5 million with $7 million guaranteed, NFL Network reported Monday. Morse, 31, was released by the Bills in a salary cap move last week, which made him eligible to sign before the official start of free agency.

A Pro Bowl selection in 2022, Morse entered the NFL in 2015 as a second-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs, where current Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson was offensive coordinator.

A captain in Buffalo, Morse is expected to replace Luke Fortner in Jacksonville. Fortner was 32nd in the NFL in pass protection grades among the league’s 32 starting centers in 2023 based on Pro Football Focus analytics.

Morse has played in 126 career regular-season games.

Davis caught 45 passes for 746 yards and seven touchdowns in 2023. A fourth-round pick in 2020 out of UCF, Davis turns 25 next month. He caught 163 passes for 2,730 yards and 27 touchdowns with the Bills.

Savage, 26, landed a three-year deal, per NFL Network. The 2019 first-round pick played the last five seasons with the Green Bay Packers, recording nine interceptions and 302 tackles in 72 games (69 starts). He made 10 starts last season and posted 51 tackles.

The Jaguars also announced the contract extension of offensive lineman Blake Hance on Monday. Terms were not disclosed.

Hance, 28, played in all 17 games with one start last season for Jacksonville, who claimed him off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 31, 2022. He has appeared in 50 games (nine starts) with the Cleveland Browns (2020-21), 49ers (2022) and Jaguars.
