Davis was signed by the Dolphins to a five-year deal with a guarantee in excess of $7 million. Davis recorded his first career interception in Week 4 of the 2009 season against Buffalo BillsquarterbackTrent Edwards, returning it 23 yards for a touchdown. Davis finished his rookie season with 53 tackles, four interceptions, and 11 pass deflections. Pro Football Weekly selected him on its annual All-Rookie team.
During the 2011 preseason, Davis boasted that he and cornerback Sean Smith were the "best (cornerback) tandem in the league". However, his first two games were forgettable as New England'sTom Brady passed for 517 yards in the season opener, and Davis had no passes defended or interceptions in either game. He also had to leave both of the first two games with injuries including cramps in week 1 and a hamstring injury in Miami's week 2 loss against the Houston Texans.

On August 26, 2012, Davis was traded to the Indianapolis Colts for a second-round draft pick. On March 11, 2014, Davis re-signed with the Colts on a 4-year, $39 million deal. After having one of the best years of any cornerback in the league during the 2014–15 season by leading the NFL in lowest opposing passer rating (38.8), he was named to his first-career Pro Bowl on December 23, 2014.
