Colts originally offered a 5th and 6th for Vontae Davis

Earlier this week, the Dolphins sent Vontae Davis to the Colts for a 2nd and 6th round pick. However, according to the Palm Beach Post and confirmed on the recent episode of Hard Knocks, the Colts originally offered just a 5th and 6th round pick for Davis, before eventually being negotiated up to a 2nd and 6th round pick. Getting Davis for just a 5th and 6th round pick would have been highway robbery, but the fact that the Colts got negotiated all the way up to a 2nd round pick makes me lean even more towards Miami as the winner of this trade. The Colts are taking a serious risk that Davis, known for inconsistency and work ethic issues, continues his strong play from 2011, while the Dolphins were deep enough at cornerback to let Davis go for the right price.
