Free agent cornerback Vontae Davis visiting with the 49ers

Feb 20, 2018 at 6:36 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are hosting former Indianapolis Colts cornerback Vontae Davis for a visit on Tuesday, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. He has already visited with the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns.


Davis, who is the younger brother of former 49ers and current Washington Redskins tight end, Vernon Davis, was released by the Colts last November after opting to have season-ending surgery. While with Indianapolis, he suffered a groin injury against the Pittsburgh Steelers during the preseason. The injury caused Davis to miss the first three weeks of the 2017 season.

On February 12, Davis was cleared from his core injury surgery, which was performed on November 8, 2017, according to a report by Schefter.


Davis, who is a two-time Pro Bowl selection (2014, 2015), has played in 120 career games while starting 112 games through nine NFL seasons with the Colts and Miami Dolphins. During that span, he has registered 395 combined tackles, 22 interceptions with one returned for a touchdown, 97 passes defensed, and three forced fumbles.

In five games last season, Davis registered 21 combined tackles and two passes defensed.

Davis was the 25th-overall pick by the Dolphins in 2009 and played collegiate football at Illinois. He spent his first three NFL seasons with Miami before being traded to Indianapolis before the start of the 2012 season.

Fans like to play "What If," wondering what things might be like had their favorite team opted for a different choice at a pivotal moment. Fans aren't the only ones, though. Take former San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, for instance. His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth
