The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are shopping CB Will Davis.
The Dolphins would be lucky to get a conditional late-round pick back for Davis. He's coming off a torn ACL in November and is still trying to regain his footing on the field. Davis has contributed nothing since being drafted 93rd overall in 2013. Coming out of Utah State, he projected as a nickel corner long-term. Sep 2 - 3:20 PM

Dolphins CB Will Davis (ACL) is expected to be ready for the preseason.

Davis has progressed without setbacks since tearing up his knee last November. He participated in team drills in last month's minicamp. Although technically in the mix to start opposite Brent Grimes, Davis is fighting for his roster spot and a reserve role.

Dolphins CB Will Davis (knee) is participating in team drills at OTAs.

He's progressed to 11-on-11 work after tearing his ACL in November. Davis is competing for snaps and a job in the Dolphins' wide-open cornerback depth chart. The 2013 third-round pick has yet to make much of an NFL impact.

The Dolphins expect third-year CB Will Davis (ACL) to be ready for the start of training camp.

Davis tore his ACL in mid-November of last season. The 25-year-old played sparingly and was ineffective in his limited opportunities before going down. Davis is technically in the mix to start at right corner, but could also be on the roster bubble. After passing on Kevin Johnson and Marcus Peters, Miami's cornerback depth chart is wide open beyond LCB Brent Grimes.

Dolphins third-round CB Will Davis (ankle) has not been cleared to return to practice.

It explains why Miami decided to keep 11 defensive backs on their 53-man roster. Davis was spotted in a walking boot on his left foot Monday. He has been shut down since suffering a sprained ankle in the Dolphins' third preseason game.

Dolphins signed third-round CB Will Davis to a four-year contract.

The 93rd overall selection in the draft, Davis was projected as a last-day pick by most draft analysts but the Fins were desperate for cornerback depth. Davis is probably not a candidate to play significant defensive snaps as a rookie.

Dolphins third-round CB Will Davis "stood out" in Friday's rookie minicamp practice.

The Dolphins traded up for Davis and expect him to compete for a starting job as a rookie. With Dimitri Patterson and Richard Marshall not guaranteed roster spots, both Davis and No. 54 overall pick Jamar Taylor should see extensive playing time. Davis is undersized and may be best suited for nickel duties.

Dolphins traded up to select Utah State CB Will Davis with the No. 93 overall pick, sending pick Nos. 109, 146 and 224 to Green Bay.

Davis (5-foot-11 1/4, 186) ranked second nationally in pass breakups (17) as a senior, picking off five and recording 4.5 tackles for loss. He ran 4.53 at the Combine with an explosive 10-foot-7 broad jump, also repping 226 pounds 16 times. Davis is small with short arms (31 1/2"), so he may be best suited to nickel back once he fully develops. The Fins are dangerously needy at cornerback, so they're doubling down with Davis after drafting Jamar Taylor.
