Report: Colts, Vontae Davis closing in on a contract
Another top-end free agent appears poised to re-sign with his current club.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS, the Colts and cornerback Vontae Davis are “nearing a deal” that’s anticipated to be completed on Monday.
The 25-year-old Davis is the second-ranked cornerback and the No. 7 overall player on PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100. He started all 16 games for the Colts in 2013, notching 46 tackles, defending 12 passes and recording one interception.
Were the 5-foot-11, 204-pound Davis to hit the market, his age, athleticism and size would work in his favor. However, the Colts, who surrendered a second-round pick to acquire Davis from Miami in 2012, are reportedly on the verge of keeping him in the fold.
