Dolphins Ship CB Vontae Davis to Colts for Second-Round Pick

Maybe next time, Vontae Davis will be careful about complaining about being tired.

Davis, a former first-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2009, has been moved to the Colts for a 2013 second-round pick.

The 24-year-old started 36 of his 44 games for the Dolphins over the last three seasons, totaling 148 tackles, one sack and nine interceptions. Davis’ four interceptions in 2009 and 2011 were team-highs.

Davis didn’t make any friends with the new Dolphins coaching staff when during a feature on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” he complained how tired he was.

The CB was the 25th overall pick of the Dolphins in the 2009 NFL Draft. He had been replaced by the Fins in the starting lineup, making him expendable.

Davis will earn $957,500 in base salary in 2012 and is currently scheduled to make $1,136,250 in base salary with a $50,000 workout bonus in 2013.

    I like the move by Philbin to ship out Davis. I know he’s young, but he was never a team guy, and seeing him sucking wind on Hard Knocks was all I needed to see to know he wasn’t worth the effort. Good riddance
