The Indianapolis Colts have acquired cornerback Vontae Davis from the Miami Dolphins.  In return for Vontae Davis, the Dolphins will receive a second round pick and a conditional sixth round pick in the 2013 NFL draft.  The Colts were in need of a physical cornerback and Davis, a former first round pick, at 6 foot and 203 pounds fits the bill.  Davis, only 24, showed up to Dolphins camp this summer out of shape and failed to impress the new coaching staff.  However, the Colts felt that it was a good enough risk to take on Davis, who is signed to a cheap contract over the next two seasons.  Matt Williamson of Scout’s Inc stated, “He has a ton of ability, but has been very up and down with Miami. At times, he was a shutdown type guy, other times he really looks bad. But the Colts — now in Ravens fashion — are going to ask MUCH more from their CB position than in years past in Indy. Seems like a lot to give up, but I bet Indy’s staff gets much more out of Davis than Miami did. Pagano knows DBs.”  If the Colts can get this talented and gifted corner back on track then they will emerge as the victors from this trade.
