Finally after days of reading tweets from Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay about a potential trade that was possibly going to down this weekend, his club finally pulled the trigger on a trade that will bring Miami Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis to the Colts in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft according to a report by NFL.com.
Davis is a former first-round pick out of Illinois that was selected 25th overall by the Dolphins in the 2009 Draft. In his three seasons with Miami, he has started 36 of 44 career games, while registering 148 tackles, a sack and nine interceptions.
The young corner is just 24-years old and still has plenty of good years left in his prime and has two years remaining on his rookie contract. Reports are alos suggesting that there is another undisclosed draft pick that is also included in the deal.
The 5’11” 205-pound corner, who is the brother of 49ers tight end Vernon Davis will help provide the Colts with a long-term solution at cornerback along with current starter Jerraud Powers.
