Former NFL player Vontae Davis dies in Florida home.

Authorities announced Monday that NFL player and former Miami Dolphin Vontae Davis was found dead inside a mansion in Southwest Ranches.

The 35-year-old ex-NFL star's death was discovered in a residence in the 6000 block of Southwest 178th Avenue, according to Davie Police, who respond to calls in Southwest Ranches.

Initial reports indicated no foul play was involved, according to the police. Multiple officers were seen outside the expansive home, which has a lengthy driveway and a large rear pool, in aerial footage from Chopper 6.

Property records show that the house is owned by the former NFL star's grandmother, Adaline Davis. The 6-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom property, which covers almost 6,500 square feet, was last sold in 2018 for roughly $3.9 million, according to records.

Davis was drafted by the Dolphins with the 25th overall pick in 2009 by the University of Illinois. Before the Indianapolis Colts traded for him in 2012, he was a member of the club for three years. He remained an NFL player for seven more years, garnering Pro Bowl selections in 2014 and 2015.

While playing for the Buffalo Bills in 2018, cornerback Davis decided to retire. His older brother Vernon Davis was a tight end with the San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, and Washington Redskins, and he was named to the Pro Bowl thrice.

Last year, a collision on the Florida Turnpike in Hollywood put Vontae Davis in the news after he was detained on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Photos taken after the accident, which destroyed Davis's Tesla, showed him seemingly dozing off on the side of the road.
