COLTS ACQUIRE VONTAE DAVIS FROM THE DOLPHINS
Wed, 29 Aug 2012 03:55 PM EDT

A few days after team owner Jim Irsay ignited speculation about a possible trade, the Colts seized former first-round draft pick Vontae Davis to solidify their secondary.

Miami will get Indy’s 2nd-round pick and a conditional, undisclosed late-round pick in the 2013 draft — a steep price for a veteran cornerback who recently lost his starting job, but one the Indianapolis Colts found acceptable.

“I think if Vontae were coming out in the 2013 draft, there’s no way he’d be there. A man of this caliber and with this talent level and skills, he would not be there in the 2nd (round),” Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “You don’t find guys like this in the 2nd.”

The addition of Davis came hours after the Indianapolis Colts took another big defensive hit when an MRI confirmed defensive tackle Brandon McKinney injured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Pagano claimed McKinney likely would go on injured reserve soon, ending his season.

McKinney, one of several ex-Ravens now in Indianapolis, was signed as a free agent in April to add size and depth to the defensive line. With his knowledge of the Ravens’ defensive system, Pagano and the new Indianapolis Colts coaches expected him to help Indy make a smooth transition from their conventional 4-3 defensive front to Pagano’s preferred 3-4 hybrid.

It has been that kind of preseason for the Colts, who have lost 2 backup linebackers with season-ending knee injuries and should be without starting inside linebacker Pat Angerer (cracked foot) for a couple more weeks.

The Colts also played Saturday without new defensive end Cory Redding (knee) and LB Robert Mathis (shoulder).

“Losing the couple of linebackers that we’ve lost and now Brandon and the injuries that have kept some guys out for a couple weeks here and there, it’s tricky from a continuity standpoint,” Pagano declared.

“You’d love to have them all playing together just from a communication standpoint and a trust perspective and all those types of things. So it’s been a challenge for Greg Manusky and our defensive coaches. … It seems like each time we come out of a preseason game or what not, we’re adding somebody new to the mix.”

Davis is the newest addition to the list and will fill a huge void.

Jerraud Powers has been a solid starter at one cornerback spot every one of the past 3 seasons and was expected to do the same again this year.

But with no clear winner in the competition for the other spot, new GM Ryan Grigson commenced chatting with the Dolphins about Davis. Football betting lines

The No. 25 overall pick in the 2009 draft was a starter since his rookie season, but his effort and conditioning were questioned in this summer’s coaching camp and he lost his starting job to newcomer Richard Marshall.

In 44 career games with Dolphins, Davis had 148 career tackles and 9 interceptions.

By pairing Davis and Powers, the Colts now have 2 established starters at cornerback and a bevy of youngsters struggling for playing time behind them.
