Vontae O. Davis (born May 27, 1988) is an American football cornerback for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Dolphins 25th overall in the 2009 NFL Draft. He played college football at Illinois. Davis was considered one of the top-2 defensive backs available in the draft (alongside Malcolm Jenkins)
Davis was signed by the Dolphins to a five-year deal with a guarantee in excess of $7 million. Davis recorded his first career interception in Week 4 of the 2009 season against Buffalo Bills quarterback Trent Edwards, returning it 23 yards for a touchdown. Davis finished his rookie season with 53 tackles, four interceptions, and 11 pass deflections. Pro Football Weekly selected him on its annual All-Rookie team. During the 2011 preseason, Davis boasted that he and cornerback Sean Smith were the "best (cornerback) tandem in the league". However, his first two games were forgettable as New England's Tom Brady passed for 517 yards in the season opener, and Davis had no passes defended or interceptions in either game. As of August 26, 2012, Davis was traded to the Indianapolis Colts for a second-round draft pick.
