Property records show Davis was found at a home owned by his grandmother, WSVN reported.

No foul play is suspected, although police spokesperson Sgt. Kelvin Urbaez emphasized to the Herald, “The investigation remains ACTIVE and ongoing.”

Davis was a first-round draft pick by the Dolphins in 2009, and he spent three years with the team before being traded to the Indianapolis Colts, WTVJ reported.

On social media, the Dolphins shared condolences for Davis’ family.

Representatives for the Colts said the team was “devasted to hear of Vontae Davis’s passing.”
