Vontae Davis Trade Reaction: Dolphins Clearly In Rebuild Mode

The Dolphins trade of Vontae Davis to the Indianapolis Colts further signals that the team is clearly in rebuild mode, according to Dolphins' blog The Phinsider. Davis had fallen out of favor of late with the Dolphins coaching staff but he was talented. However, it appears that a change of scenery might have been in order for Davis to ever realize his potential.

Either way, the Dolphins have given up on Davis, and are ready to move on. The team is clearly in rebuild mode, with multiple second and third round picks for 2013 now. The team appears ready to build around rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, looking more toward the future than they are looking at today.

Davis came into training camp the last two seasons out of shape and lost his starting job early in camp this season to Richard Marshall.
