According to Pro Football Talk, veteran cornerback Vontae Davis is expected to sign a contract Tuesday, but it does not look like that deal will be with the Indianapolis Colts.
CB Vontae Davis currently is expected to sign a contract on Tuesday — but not with the Colts. Not over yet though.

This could just be posturing on Davis’ side in an attempt to get more money out of his current team because a report surfaced yesterday claiming Davis and the Colts were close to a deal.
After the Green Bay Pacers re-signed Sam Shields to a large deal, Davis and his representation are likely trying to squeeze out as much money as possible.
After all, the market for cornerbacks in the league is obviously hot and Davis is just 25 years old.
Davis was selected by the Miami Dolphins with the 25th overall pick in the 2009 draft. After three seasons in Miami, Davis was dealt to the Colts in a move that famously appeared on HBO’s Hard Knocks.
Last season, Davis made 46 tackles and had one interception in 16 games.
