When the Indianapolis Colts acquired defensive back Vontae Davis in a trade with the Miami Dolphins right before the 2012 season got underway, he was seen as potentially one of the future stars of the organization. However, with the Free Agency period right around the corner, his time with the Colts might soon be coming to an abrupt end, as the Indy Star reports that the two side are still a long ways away from locking anything down.
Conversations between the team and Davis continue. But The Indianapolis Star has learned no deal is imminent and, in fact, the sides are relatively far apart in negotiations.
As pointed out in the piece, this is not good news for the Colts. At just 25-years-old, some other team could view Davis an integral part of their team and woo him their way. While it’s not a foregone conclusion at all that Davis won’t be back, the talks being so far apart at this point make that much more difficult to pull off.
Friday is the last day that teams have to talk to their own players, as beginning Saturday, theses guys like Davis become fair game around the league.
