John Davis was a career backup offensive lineman who came to the Bills as a Plan B free agent from the Houston Oilers.  He stepped in to the starting right guard job for the Bills on their first Super Bowl team.  The Bills fielded the league's top offense that season and Davis held on to the starting gig until conceding it to Glenn Parker halfway through the 1991 season.  He stuck with the Bills for a couple more years as a valuable reinforcement who played all over the line.  For some reason, he kept the Pro Set card I sent (which is a much more aesthetically pleasing card than the 1991 Fleer).  Oh well... can't complain too much about a free autograph!
