Vontae Davis, Miami’s 1st round draft pick in 2009, has been dealt to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2nd round draft pick, Jay Glazer reports.
Davis, a talented cornerback from Illinois who is only 24, will immediately bolster a weak Indianapolis defense.
Miami seems to be in rebuilding mode and new coach Joe Philbin seems to want nothing to do with any outsized personalities. The Dolphins traded their best offensive player, Brandon Marshall, back in March, and now have unloaded their 2nd best defensive player (Cameron Wake, who has 28 sacks in three years, is their best).
Assuming the Colts are in the ballpark of 6-10, Miami should have three of the Top 40 picks in the 2013 draft.
