Plan A: Vontae Davis
Plan B: Tarell Brown
It's long been understood that the Colts and Vontae Davis both wished to get a deal done. While it still could happen, reports are now emerging that Davis has been speaking to other teams and is nearing a deal with somebody other than the Colts, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
If Davis falls through, the Colts need to find another corner who can play press-man coverage. There are only a few options left in free agency that fit the bill, namely Aqib Talib and Tarell Brown. Brown doesn't have the upside Talib does, but he's a solid corner without being a headcase, and he should be a semi-cheap option.
However, there may be another path. According to Jarrett Bell of USA Today, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are contemplating parting with Darrelle Revis if he will not take a restructured deal. Revis may be either traded or released. Revis would be a huge upgrade at corner, and the Colts should be inquiring about the talented corner. He would be expensive, but he's one of the top two corners in the league.
UPDATE: The Colts have signed Vontae Davis to a four-year deal worth $39 million with $20 million guaranteed.
