The Colts aren’t afraid to move quickly, but things are moving more slowly with Vontae Davis.

According to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, there’s no deal imminent between the team and the veteran cornerback, and that “the sides are relatively far apart in negotiations.”

That’s the kind of thing that can be fixed in one phone call, but at this stage in the process, the timing works against the Colts.

With other teams able to talk to free agents tomorrow, today’s the last window for them to negotiate exclusively with their own.

While the Colts have been quick to bring in linebacker D’Qwell Jackson and re-sign punter Pat McAfee, letting Davis get to the market would be a blow, as his physical play and age (25) should make him one of the top available players at his position.
