Adam Schefter reports that even though free agent CB Vontae Davis will be undergoing groin surgery that it is expected to sideline him six to eight weeks, a handful of teams, including two in the mix for playoff sports, have already have reached out and expressed interest in signing him.
According to Schefter, these teams hope Davis could contribute during a playoff run. Unfortunately, Schefter doesn’t name the teams with interest in Davis.
Schefter adds that Davis hasn’t ruled out returning this season, but it is uncertain how quickly he will be able to return from groin surgery.
“It is a possibility,” a source tells Schefter of the chance that Davis plays again this season.
Davis, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2009. He spent three years in Miami before he was traded to the Colts for the 2012 season.
Davis was in the final year of his four-year, $36 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $9 million for the 2017 season when the Colts waived him on Thursday.
In 2017, Davis has appeared in four games and recorded 17 tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense.
