The Miami Dolphins are making moves so they can compete in the tough AFC East. Yesterday, they shipped  cornerback Vontae Davis to the Indianapolis Colts for a second-round pick and a conditional sixth-rounder.

Dolphins players had plenty to say about how they felt about the trade.

Linebacker Karlos Dansby was asked if the trade was discouraging.

"I'll leave that up to you all,"  he told the Miami Herald. "I don't know what the situation was or what occurred to cause the trade. "He's a great player, one of the best corners in the game. I'm not sure about the direction of the team. That's not my place. My place is to play hard and be the leader of men... There’s nothing I can do to control that. It’s not my place to recommend or OK a trade.”
