Colts (Unofficially) Sign Former Ball State Quarterback Nate Davis To Two-Year Deal

Back in 2009, only one team attended the Pro Day for all-world quarterback Nate Davis, who had thrown for 3,446 yards, 26 touchdowns, and just seven interceptions during the 2008 season for Ball State. That team was the Indianapolis Colts, and now (two years later) they have signed the mobile QB with the rocket arm to a two-year deal.

According to Andrew Mishler of The Ball State Daily News and Dough Zaleski of the The Star Press, Davis will be a Colt as the team prepares to open training camp for the 2011 season.

The news of Davis' signing comes on the heels of ESPN's Chris Mortensen saying yesterday that the Colts are looking to sign a veteran quarterback while Peyton Manning's neck continues to mend after surgery in May. Per the new league rules, free agent signings are not 'official' until Friday, but that obviously has not stopped Davis himself from saying that he has agreed to a two-year deal.

We all saw Davis last year in preseason when, as a member of the 49ers, he outplayed Curtis Painter. Speaking of Painter, I'm hoping the signing of Davis signals the end of Curtis as a Colts backup.
