Bio

Vontae Davis is a cornerback for the Indianapolis Colts. He played college football at the University of Illinois and was drafted in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He is the younger brother of San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis.

EARLY YEARS

Davis was born on May 27, 1988 in Washington, D.C. As a senior at Dunbar High School, Davis played wide receiver and cornerback, recording 38 tackles and eight interceptions. According to Rivals.com, Davis was the 33rd-best cornerback prospect in the nation. He decided to go to Illinois instead of Maryland, Michigan State, and Virginia.

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS

He was named to the Freshman All-American team after recording 30 tackles and one interception.

As a sophomore, Davis had 76 tackles and a career-high four interceptions, third most in the Big-Ten. He had another 78 tackles and two interceptions as a junior, his final year on campus.

MIAMI DOLPHINS

Davis was drafted with the 25th pick in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Dolphins.

In week 4 of the 2009 NFL Season, Davis had his first career interception against the Buffalo Bills, which he returned 23 yards for a TD. He finished his rookie season with 53 tackles, a team-high four interceptions, and 11 pass deflections.

Coming into the 2011 NFL Season, Davis suffered from poor condition during the preseason and was eventually traded to the Indianapolis Colts for a second-round pick.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

In two years with the team, Davis has made 26 starts, totaling four interceptions and 20 pass deflections.

He signed a new four-year, $39 million contract with the team on March 11, 2014.
