Former Colts cornerback Vontae Davis died at the age of 35. 

Davis starred for the Colts from 2012-2017. He was named a Pro Bowler in 2014 and 2015 and totaled 13 interceptions and 84 pass break-ups over 76 games with the Colts. Davis' 18 passes defensed in 2014 are the most in a single season in Colts history.

In the Colts' playoff win over Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos following the 2014 season, Davis broke up five passes, second-most in NFL postseason single-game history.

Both on and off the field, Davis was a central figure for the Colts over his six seasons in Indianapolis.

Davis entered the NFL in 2009 as a first-round draft pick of the Dolphins (No. 25 overall) and played the first three years of career with Miami. The Colts acquired Davis in a trade with the Dolphins just before the 2012 season. Davis also played one game with the Buffalo Bills in 2018.

Davis was a native of Washington, D.C. and played his college ball at Illinois.
