Former NFL cornerback Vontae Davis has passed away at the age of 35.

Davis, who played 10 seasons before retiring in 2018, was found dead in a Florida home. WSVN reported that a male body was found in a home owned by Davis' grandmother on Monday, April 1, in Southwest Ranches Florida, which is 30 miles north of Miami.
