Former NFL cornerback Vontae Davis found dead in Miami home

Former Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts cornerback Vontae Davis was found dead in his South Florida home on Monday. Police found Davis’s body on Monday morning in a house in Southwest Ranches, a suburban community in the Miami area.

Police Officers were called to the home in Southwest Ranches by a house assistant and found Davis dead, according to the Davie Police Department. Preliminary information suggests foul play is not involved, and the investigation is active, police added.

The Broward County Office of Medical Examiner and Trauma Services said Monday that it could take up to 90 days to determine Davis’ cause of death, pending a full examination and further testing.

Davis had a superb college career at Illinois before he was picked in the first-round of the 2009 draft by the Miami Dolphins.He was known for his thoughtful and quiet demeanour. Davis finished his Miami Dolphins career with 149 combined tackles, nine interceptions and one sack. In 2012 he was traded to the Indianapolis Colts where he enjoyed his best years in the NFL, and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2014 and 2015.

His final season came with the Buffalo Bills in 2018, where he gained attention when he announced his retirement at half-time of a game against the Los Angeles Chargers. He released a statement after the game saying that after multiple injuries and surgeries, “Reality hit me fast and hard: I shouldn’t be out there anymore.”
