All of which explains why Davis was such an important commodity in Indianapolis.
"He is a rare talent at 25 years of age who is still ascending as a player," Grigson said. "We are excited to see him reach new heights in his career and help us attain our ultimate goal."
Davis tried to ignore the business side of the transaction as much as possible, sticking to his normal daily routine and awaiting word from his agent. In the end, he wound up in his preferred destination.
"My teammates are like brothers," Davis said. "It's a brotherhood. When you go to the Colts, it's something that you hold with you for the rest of your life."
