Report: Colts trade for Dolphins CB Vontae Davis

NFL

On Thursday, Colts owner Robert Irsay stoked trade rumors when he tweeted that trade winds were “swirling.” On Saturday, he tweeted that trade winds were “still howlin’.”
Irsay’s trade reportedly has come to fruition.

Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reports via Twitter, that the Colts have agreed to send a second-round pick (No. 13) to the Dolphins for cornerback Vontae Davis.

Davis’ relationship/performance with the Dolphins has been rocky during a training camp that has included head coach Joe Philbin chastising Davis on HBO’s Hard Knocks.

Davis has started 36 games for the Dolphins since being selected out of Illinois in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft. He tied a career high with four interceptions in 2011.

this was the big trade? ya a good corner is nice, but you dont give away high draft picks when you're trying to rebuild.
