3. The Colts deal for Vontae Davis, and south Florida begins to say, "Wait 'til next year." In the aggressive, rush-heavy defense new Indy coach Chuck Pagano plays, the Colts need cover corners. Now they have one after Sunday's trade with the Miami Dolphins for Davis. Though the fourth-year veteran had fallen out of favor with the new staff in Miami, Pagano is likely to make him a poor man's Darrelle Revis, putting him on an island against the Andre Johnsons and Justin Blackmons on the Colts' schedule.

The Dolphins now have dealt two of their former stalwarts from the Tony Sparano regime, Brandon Marshall and Davis, and they'll have a rich draft (five picks in the first three rounds) in 2013 to show for it. Whether GM Jeff Ireland will be making those picks remains to be seen, but let me say this in his defense: Miami did well to get two third-rounders for Marshall, and if a devalued Davis were on the bench to start the season, Miami wouldn't have been able to get a second-rounder for him before the trading deadline.

Now we won't be SB contenders. Oh wait, we were losers with Marshall and Davis, that's right....I think we/media over value players.

And Davis will get torched, just like week 2 of last year. It will be a long year for the Colts with Davis island.

5 draft picks in first 3 rounds. 50 million in cap space next year. Safe to say next offseason will be exciting.

50M of cap because Jake Long and Reggie Bush are both FA's next year. Exciting? Sure... more like nervous breakdown.

We don't even know they're going to spend heavy. Philbin after all is this big proponent building the team thru the draft. He's said as much in the past.

Exactly. Long will take up 12'sh million of that, Hartline another 3-4, Bush is 50/50 at this point, but he'd be another 6'sh, Sean Smith is going to be 5-7 million per year, Starks is a 6'sh per year guy, all those draft picks need 6 million in room.....

That leaves maybe 5 million to spend on Free Agents...

Actually, I don't see how it works. I'm saying he will get torched. He will have an average inconsistant year just like when he was a fin. IF he has a probowl type year and our secondary sucks, I will be the 1st to admit that we made a mistake. Until then, I'll stick with my opinions regarding Vontae Davis. You and Rock have this little thing going on regarding throwing facts and I told you so's in each others face. Does it matter?

Hartline another 3-4

James Jones got a little over 3 million per year when he resigned last year. I think Hartline's deal would be pretty similar. Heck, Robert Meachem got 6.5 million per year. A better player than Hartline, but the numbers suggest they should be paid similar amounts.

I don't think you can keep him for under 3/yr.

I agree. Hartline has done about as much of nothing as he could have done. I like his hands & he makes some tough catches, but I believe the reason they are tough catches is because he has trouble getting separation.

Probably would take Meachem, but not Jones. Unless he shows he can actually catch a football & not drop 13% of his passes.

Very true and if he ever gets over this injury, he'll easily be the best WR on the team this year. Another potential trade to Indy in about week six. Their third would go nicely with that 2nd they just sent us.

Yeah....because the Dolphins have been using draft picks so well for the last several years....... :cry:

Our most notable players recently were not draft picks.....Wake, Bess, Bush, Marshall. Our high draft picks have not been impressive, and that is being generous.

The Miami Dolphins will not receive an additional sixth-round draft choice from the Indianapolis Colts in the trade for CB Vontae Davis. Davis did not play in 65 percent of the Colts' defensive plays during the regular season which would have given the Dolphins the sixth-round pick.


Not only that, but that 2nd will be in the bottom third of the 2nd Rd.
