Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star has reported that while there is mutual interest in getting cornerback Vontae Davis to return to the Indianapolis Colts, there isn’t “anything concrete” between the two parties yet.

Davis has played well since arriving in a trade from the Miami Dolphins, though his departure could be affected by the market for quality cornerbacks. Holder reports that not only does there need to be a clearer picture of the market before a move is made, but also the analysis of the talent available at the Combine could offer teams cheaper alternatives.

Free agents can begin to sign contracts from 11 March, with negotiations beginning on 8 March. This gives the Colts a two week period to decide whether they want to make an offer to Davis – and of course, since he is under contract they can re-sign him immediately.

Other corners available who could affect the interest in Davis’ services include Brent Grimes, Aqib Talib and Alterraun Verner, each of whom is likely to hit the open market.
