Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, citing a league source, reports that the Miami Dolphins are making calls to other NFL teams regarding a possible trade involving CB Will Davis.
Salguero mentions that Davis’ inconsistent play this summer and the team’s depth at the cornerback position had led to the Dolphins making him available for trade.
However, it’s unclear whether or not the Dolphins intend to cut Davis if they can’t find a trade partner in the coming days.
In the end, Salguero believes it’s unlikely the Dolphins would get a high-round or even mid-round draft pick in return for Davis.
Davis, 25, is a former third-round draft pick of the Dolphins back in 2013. He’s entering the third year of his four-year, $2.701 million rookie contract that included a $521,200 signing bonus and stands to make a base salary of $592,500 for the upcoming season.
According to OverTheCap.com, trading Davis would free up $462,200 in cap space while creating $260,600 in dead money.
In 2014, Davis was limited to appearing in 10 games, in which he recorded 17 tackles and three pass defenses for Miami. It’s worth mentioning that Davis is coming off a torn ACL that he sustained back in November.
