HBO’s Hard Knocks show on the Miami Dolphins showed recent segments on the recent Vontae Davis trade.

Davis was recently traded from the Dolphins to the Indianapolis Colts. In the Tuesday episode, it revealed that Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson offered a fifth and sixth round picks.

After Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland turned down the fifth and sixth round picks, Grigson offered a third round pick, which was also turned down. Davis was traded to the Colts on Sunday for a second round pick and a conditional six round pick in 2013.

Davis was reportedly out of shape when he arrived to camp and failed to impress the new coaching staff. He was reportedly on the roster bubble when he was traded, as Richard Marshall was expected to take his starting job.

Davis will make $957,500 this year, then $1.136 million during the 2013 season. He will become a free agent after the 2013 season.
