The retired NFL player Vontae Davis took his last breath on April 1, 2024, in his grandma Adeline Davis’s Southwest Ranches home.

Vontae Ottis Davis, born May 27, 1988, took the first step in football by playing cornerback and wide receiver in high school.

During his senior year, he received the title of D.C. Gatorade Player of the Year for his tackles and interceptions technique.

Later, his career peaked when the Miami Dolphins drafted him as the 25th pick on March 18, 2009, after he completed most of the combined drills.

Davis played cornerback for the Miami Dolphins from 2009 to 2012, after which he was traded to the Indianapolis Colts. He stayed as a cornerback until 2017 before retiring from football entirely.

Sadly, the retired NFL player is no longer around us as he passed away recently in his home without the cause of death known.

However, during the mourning period, a video of a conversation between Vontae Davis and Ireland, the General Manager of Miami Dolphins, took over Twitter, where Davis’s words followed, “I want to call my grandma.”

Vontae Davis Considered His Grandma, Adeline Davis, His Only Support System

The late Vontae Davis had a turbulent childhood, as his parents could not look after him and his two siblings.

News sources have that Davis and his siblings were going to different foster care as his father was absent all the time and his mother was fighting cocaine addiction, with no time to look after them.

Yet, it was Vontae Davis grandma, Adeline Davis, who decided to adopt them, although she and her husband were having financial trouble and now had to look after seven children altogether.

Nevertheless, Adeline did not give up on her grandkids, and Davis and his siblings worked efficiently for scholarships.

Davis opened up during an interview with Fox Sports on how his grandma called him after watching his Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Miami Dolphins episode.

Davis said, his grandma Adeline’s words followed, “Get in shape, baby. It’s going to be a long season.” The love between Adeline and Vontae Davis was evident.

Thus, Vontae Davis was grateful to his grandma, so he must have thought of her as soon as he received the trade news in 2012, whose clip is going viral on Twitter today.

Most fans seem to sympathize with Davis and his grandma. Many people retweeted the video, saying, “RIP Vontae Davis. Always remembered this. Just a kid making it into the pros, not sure what to do, and he just wanted to call his grandma.”

Some quote the tweet as, “Man, that Vontae Davis scene in Hard Knocks where he wants to call his Grandma after being traded hits harder now 😔😢.”

Meanwhile, Adeline’s whereabouts are unknown after the news about the NFL player broke out.

Nonetheless, Vontae Davis lives through his wife Megan Harpe, who tied the knot with the player in Puerto Rico in 2015.
