Vontae Davis, the former Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts cornerback, has died suddenly at the age of 35.

His former teams and team-mates came together to play tribute to Davis, a two-time Pro Bowl player in 2014 and 2015, after he was found unresponsive in a Fort Lauderdale residence.

No cause of death has been announced, with the investigating Davie Police Department reportedly suggesting no foul play is suspected.

The Colts, where Davis played between 2012-17, said on X: โ€œWe are devastated to hear of Vontae Davisโ€™s passing. He will be deeply missed, and we send our prayers to his family and loved ones.

โ€œHe was a standout player in his six seasons with the Horseshoe, but he was an even better team-mate who carried a smile and positive energy every day.โ€

The Dolphins, who gave him his NFL break after his college football success with Illinois, posted: โ€œWe are heartbroken by the sudden passing of former Dolphins CB Vontae Davis and extend our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones during this difficult time.โ€

Those who shared the field with Davis also took to social media with their own marks of respect, with Kenny Moore II declaring: โ€œIt hurts to see the news OG. You a legend VD.โ€

Reggie Wayne, the retired wide receiver and former colleague at Indianapolis, wrote: โ€œSad Day. It was a pleasure wearing the horseshoe with you homie. Rest easy Champ.โ€

Davis, brother of Super Bowl winner Vernon, ended his professional career in 2018 by retiring midway through a game for the Bulls.
