The Miami Dolphins traded cornerback Vontae Davis to the Indianapolis Colts for a second-round pick and a conditional sixth-round pick in August. The condition was that Davis play 65 percent of the Colts regular season snaps, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Dolphins won't get that second pick since Davis was injured with a sprained knee and didn't reach 65 percent.

Davis missed six games, but came on strong down the stretch with a combined three interceptions in the final two weeks. He was named AFC defensive player of the week for Week 17 and finished the season with 51 tackles.

Davis hasn't been perfect in Indy and he hasn't always been available, but the Colts had a need for a press, man-to-man cornerback. He has filled that role. Was it worth a second-round pick? The Colts would make the deal again.
