Jay Glazer  of Fox Sports is reporting that the Miami Dolphins  have traded cornerback Vontae Davis to the Indianapolis Colts  in exchange for a second-round draft pick. Glazer broke the news via his personal Twitter account, tweeting:
For all who’ve been trying to find out Colts trade, I’m reporting the Colts have agreed to a trade for Fins CB Vontae Davis for 2nd rd pick

Omar Kelly  of the Sun-Sentinel reacted to Glazer’s news about the team he covers, tweeting:
Fair trade for both sides.I wouldn’t have moved Vontae Davis for anything less than a 2nd. Now Nolan Carroll must step up & Phins need 2 CBs
— Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) August 26, 2012 
The 2009 first-round draft pick has spent his entire professional football career with the Dolphins, but it appears that he’ll be leaving South Beach to join fellow first-rounder Andrew Luck in Indianapolis.
Over his three seasons in the league, Davis has posted nine interceptions, with four in his rookie season as well as last year with the Dolphins.
The Illinois alum posted his first career NFL sack in 2011, but also posted a career low in tackles during what now appears to be his last season with the team.
This trade would greatly help the Colts’ secondary, considering ESPN  currently projects the team to start relatively unknown names in Cassius Vaughn and Jerraud Powers as the starting cornerbacks.
Davis would instantly be an upgrade over both options for the Colts, who look to have added a veteran player that has experience but still plenty of years left in the league.
