Jay Glazer [6] of Fox Sports is reporting that the Miami Dolphins [7] have traded cornerback Vontae Davis to the Indianapolis Colts [8] in exchange for a second-round draft pick. Glazer broke the news via his personal Twitter account, tweeting:


Omar Kelly [9] of the Sun-Sentinel reacted to Glazer’s news about the team he covers, tweeting:


Davis has made no official word on the report on his own Twitter account [10] and no official word from either NFL [11] team has been released as of yet.

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 [12] 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.
