It was unlikely that Davis would decide to re-sign with the team after this whole fiasco, and he vented his frustrations about the situation after he was benched for the Houston game.
My guess is that the groin injury is hindering Davis' play in coverage to at least some degree, although in his 9th National Football League season, age could've caught up to the veteran cornerback a bit as well.
He complained about learning of the demotion from defensive co-ordinator Ted Monachino rather than coach Chuck Pagano, who attended Davis' wedding in 2015; contended the Colts should have come to him sooner about their concerns; and was upset the team used the term "non-injury related".
On Wednesday, it was also revealed that Davis would require season-ending surgery to fix a torn groin that Davis has been attempting to play through this season. He missed the first three games of the season before returning against Seattle. But that is no longer the organization's problem because on Thursday morning the Colts released Davis, who was in the final year of his contract.
It marks a disappointing end to what was otherwise a very good career for the 29 year old cornerback in Indianapolis.

Makers release new Tiger Zinda Hai poster
But now these two will lock horns on December 22 with their films - Salman's Tiger Zinda Hai and Nawazuddin's Monsoon Shootout. In fact, with people raving about it so much on social media, everyone saw the trailer over and over again.
At one point, he had gone more than 1,300 snaps without allowing a touchdown in coverage, which is pretty remarkable to say the least. "I'm a professional", Davis said.
He had only 21 tackles, no interceptions and two passes defensed this season. He also was demoted during training camp in 2012 for not being in shape to keep up with his Miami teammates.
Pierre Desir started against the Texans and is expected to occupy that role with Indianapolis for the remainder of the season.
It is obviously worth noting, that if the reports that he needs season-ending groin surgery are true, that may make teams decide there's no reason to claim him.
