They've done exactly that.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Davis will re-sign with the team on the heels of a "brutal negotiation" process, according to a source.
Per NFL Media's Albert Breer, the contract is for a weighty four years and $39 million with $20 million in guarantees, according to a source. The Colts later announced that the sides have agreed to terms.
Just entering his prime, the 25-year-old Davis is coming off a career year that saw him finish as the NFL's third-best corner, according to Pro Football Focus. Just nine of his peers allowed a lower completion percentage in one-on-one coverage than Vontae's mark of 50.6.
Locking down the talented young corner was a critical to-do for a squad that allowed a whopping 753 yards through the air during its two playoff games last season. After safety Antoine Bethea reached an agreement on a four-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers, Davis will be looked to as the anchor of Indy's backend defense for years to come.
