    Default Vontae Davis to Colts for 2nd Round Pick

    Didn't want it to get lost in the pile of the Irsay Tweet thread.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...nd-round-pick/

    Jim Irsay’s team has made the trade he has been hinting at for the last few days.

    The Indianapolis Colts have acquired cornerback Vontae Davis in a trade with the Miami Dolphins, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports first reported and PFT has separately confirmed. The Dolphins receive the Colts’ 2013 second-round draft pick.

    Davis and the Dolphins’ coaching staff haven’t appeared to be seeing eye-to-eye this offseason. Davis has taken some time away from practice, and Hard Knocks has shown head coach Joe Philbin getting on Davis during training camp.

    The 24-year-old Davis still has two years left on his rookie contract, and we’ve been told there have been no talks between Davis and the Colts on a new deal.

    The Dolphins picked Davis out of Illinois in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft. He has played in 44 games in three seasons, starting 36.

    It's a nice pick-up and definitely upgrades the secondary. Powers + Davis is a helluva CB combo.

    Davis is solid with the potential to be really good, but I'm not real comfortable giving up a 2nd for him.

    The Dolphins coach is a "my way or the highway" kind of guy. He has moved some good players because they didn't buy into everything he wanted to do. I think a second round that rates to be the first pick in the second round is much too high but I am willing to hope for the best.....

    Guess it's a good thing there's no chance it will be the 1st pick in the 2nd round..

    Hey!! It not only is a very good chance that the Colts would have the 1st pick in the second round, it is probable no matter what you Colts fanatics think. The great draft guru, Mel Kipper Jr. thinks the Colts could set a new NFL record by selecting first three years in a row. But, if it isn't first pick, it will almost certainly be the second or third pick. Have you been watching that offensive line and defense play? Evidently not......

    So your opinion was to ignore preseason play until there was a game where the Colts didn't fare as well. Wonder why that is...

    VERY LOW CHANCE that the colts have the 1st, 2nd or 3rd pick in the 2nd round but I can understand how a simpleton and his agenda couldn't figure that out

    Personally, I don't see the Colts winning any less than 6 games and I could see them winning around 9 games. But Ol' Blue probably disagrees. We will probably go 2-14 like last year if you ask him, even though this team is much better than last years.

    I think he is on record as saying we'll go winless this season. Apparently he feels the Painter group last year was better. lmao.

    I really do think Irsay's ramblings put added pressure on Grigson.

    Jay Glazer says Dolphins also get a conditional 6th. That's probably Irsay's Twitter tax.

    I love the acquisition. Vontae is tough. He went toe-to-toe vs Steve Smith. And he sounds just like Tyrone Biggum

    I think this should be a solid move for the Colts. I am never to big on trading early draft picks especially when you are at the bottom trying to work your way up like the Colts are. However Davis is a talented player who can help the Colts in a position of major need. I have concerns that Davis might be a headcase but I am confident that Grigson and Pagano did their homework on this guy.

    He is immature, but he also has a colorful personality and will be a fun addition to the team. Dude shows up to play on Sundays

    On StampedeBlue, they say that he has matured a bit, and there's an article about the trade that links to this piece about him:
    http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/08/0...-maturing.html
    Take this with a grain of salt though - It's basically one of those puff pieces where they interview the guy and he says he'll straighten up. I'll believe it when I see it. With that said, I still think it's an upgrade.

    Davis, or Irsay?

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Davis/Powers/Gordy is a formidable secondary, but Davis is a huge character risk and we gave up a very valuable draft pick. I'm afraid Irsay doesn't think the fans will hold on in a couple of rebuilding years and is moving too fast.

    Irsay considers this a blockbuster deal? hahah Not even close.

    Although the 2nd rounder will be a high pick, Vontae still has 2 years remaining on his deal, so I'm good with the trade. I would have preferred giving up a 3rd and a 5th instead of a 2nd and a 6th, but whatever.

    I still think Freeney should be moved before the season begins.
    With the #3 pick in the 2015 draft, your Indiana Pacers!
