Miami head coach Joe Philbin would agree.
The second-year NFL leader didn’t have much time to work with Davis last season before the trade. But he recognized the young man’s potential. And he’s seen growth since Davis arrived in Indianapolis.
“He’s playing well,” Philbin said. “He’s a very skilled athlete, and he’s got good physical toughness, good instincts. He can play a variety of coverages. He’s not a guy that has to play just one thing. He can press. He can play off. He plays the ball well. I think the Colts have obviously done a nice job with him. He’s playing well.”
For his part, Davis claims there are no hard feelings over the split. He still has friends in the Dolphins’ locker room, and he’s looking forward to seeing them today.
“It’s fun because I actually was in the locker room with some of those guys,” Davis said. “So I know a couple of guys there. But, still, it’s still NFL Sunday. We have to go out there and compete like any other Sunday.”
