New Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson has already impressed with bold moves to remake the Colts roster in the draft and through free agency. Those moves were mostly based on talent evaluation, which fit closely with Grigson's background as a scout. Still some questioned his youth and whether that would effect his ability to wheel and deal with other GMs more seasoned than he.
Sunday's deal with the Miami Dolphins to acquire cornerback Vontae Davis should put those fears to rest. In Davis, Grigson was able to address the position of greatest need within the Colts roster and he was able to do so without giving up too much.
Davis is a former first round draft choice of the Dolphins who has started since day one. He's recorded nine career interceptions with Miami, including four last season. He's also played in a 3-4 scheme his entire career, so his learning curve with the Colts should be minimal.
Davis' presence dramatically upgrades a cornerb...

On Sunday, the Colts sent two draft picks, including a second-rounder in 2013, to Miami to acquire the four-year veteran. For Davis, it marks the end of a stormy time in...

Try to contain your amazement. Jim Irsay is at it again. The owner of the Indianapolis Colts has caused a spotlight of speculation to scan all corners of the NFL from his own Twitter trade chatter.
There were two initial logical trade targets: Steelers star wide receiver Mike Wallace and Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who led the league in rushing in 2011.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay continues to string us along with his trade tweets. Today’s message is that the trade winds are howling.
No,trade winds still howlin’…but only time will tell if they were ghostly vapors or a flesh n blood upgrade!!!!!!!

Today at 4 p.m. EST, we’ll see a preseason matchup that pits the first two picks in the 2012 NFL draft against each other for the first time.
The Redskins are putting their quarterback RG3 against the Colts’ main man Andrew Luck. It will be the man with sizzle and flash against the guy that just tries to play quarterback.
In short, the variances in their style of play could...
The Indianapolis Colts waived 11 players on Sunday, including defensive backs Terrence Johnson, Chris Rucker and safety David Caldwell.
All three spent last season with the Colts as rookies.
Johnson totaled 37 tackles in 10 games, Rucker had 36 tackles and two passes defensed in 15 games and Caldwell notched 67 tackles and four passes defended.
Also cut on Sunday were cornerbacks...
Although it was just a preseason game, when number one versus number two face off, it always seems to grab everyone’s attention. Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III faced off against each other and did not disappoint the fans at FedEx field as Griffin and the Washington Redskins got the best of Luck and the Indianapolis Colts 30-17 on Saturday night. Both young quarterback looked...
When Colts' owner Jim Irsay tweeted that "TRADE WINDS (are) BLOWING!!!" earlier this week, it wasn't too big of a surprise. Irsay often appears to a monthly quota of semi-incomprehensible tweets to fill, and he had spent a good deal of time mostly out of the spotlight. It was about time for Irsay to grab some headlines.
Far more surprising was the actual trade...
Andrew Luck stepped up in the pocket to avoid the rush, then put a deep ball down the left side into the arms of fellow rookie T.Y. Hilton for a 31-yard touchdown, wrapping up an 80-yard drive.
Robert Griffin III took a high-and-wide shotgun snap and drifted to the right to find Santana Moss for a 4-yard score, also at the end of an 80-yard drive.
Call it a display of poise and...
Colts’ owner Jim Irsay said on twitter recently that the team was going to make a big move, and they did just that by trading for Dolphins’ corner back Vontae Davis.
Davis had fallen out of favor with the Dolphins, and was acquired by the Colts for the price of a second round pick and a conditional sixth rounder.
The Colts badly needed to shore up their defense, and if Davis...
The hype leading up to the RGIII Vs. Luck Bowl was one that started heating up back in March and April when everyone pretty much knew that the Indianapolis Colts were going to select Andrew Luck with the number one pick in the 2012 Draft and the Washington Redskins trading and moving up to get [...]
The trade Colts owner Jim Irsay hinted at for three days on Twitter finally came to fruition with Indianapolis acquiring cornerback Vontae Davis from Miami. The Dolphins will receive two undisclosed draft choices for the former first-round pick, with Irsay tweeting it to be a second-round pick and a conditional late-round pick in 2013. Davis, who has started 36 career games,...
