Vontae Davis continuing free agent tour in Miami

Free agent cornerback Vontae Davis said earlier this week that he was “heading home to reflect” after visiting with four teams to discuss coming aboard for the 2018 season.

That reflection has apparently been put on pause for a moment because Davis isn’t done making visits. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Davis is meeting with the Dolphins on Friday.

Davis has history with the franchise. The Dolphins drafted Davis in the first round of the 2009 draft and he spent three seasons with Miami before being traded to the Colts in August 2012. That trade played out as one of the most memorable moments of the Dolphins’ run on Hard Knocks.

The Dolphins had Xavien Howard, Cordrea Tankersley and Bobby McCain as their top three cornerbacks in 2017 and all three are under contract for the 2018 season. They also have Tony Lippett returning from a torn Achilles.

Davis also visited with the Bills, Browns, Raiders and 49ers before announcing his intent to reflect on his conversations.

  1. This is honestly why a team like Miami will never win a SB, or why any of the Florida teams will never be good or suatain.

    Most FAs are attracted to these teams for the no income tax factor. Look at Suh. He went there for that reason, as did Lebron.

    Why would any FA want to join a division with the Pats in it? It makes no sense if your main goal is to win.

    Probably because some players feel like to be the best they have to beat the best and not be content being handed the title every year like the Pats.

  3. I wouldn’t read too much into this just yet. He said he was going home to reflect; he didn’t say his home is 8 miles from the Dolphins training camp – he still lives in the house he bought during his time with the team. If it’s an affordable contract, he’ll provide good depth behind Tankersley, Howard, Lippett and McCain.

  4. Main goal ‘is to win’? These guys average 3 seasons in the league and it can be over at any moment, but fans expect them to ‘only want to win’??? Oh I don’t know, it’s their one and only shot at making silly money and people want them to just want to win? I thought a jobs compensation was pretty much the biggest measuring stick for ‘wins’ in this country.

  5. When your 40 and can’t get out of bed in the morning without agonising pain and realise who haven’t the cash to buy some milk and bread, I am sure winning a couple of division titles will make you feel better. Ok this is a terrible example but you what I mean ?.

  6. He will not get a bunch of money no where he goes, so he could go to the Pats, Chicago or Green Bay, or, he could go home and enjoy the Sun and beach and get ready for retirement. The odds of going to a team that is SB ready are slim, stay home dude. Bill…And no state income tax.
