Davis had seven interceptions during the 1959 season, and the Colts beat the Giants again in the NFL title game. When he retired he had 27 interceptions in 45 games.
"Milt Davis occupies a prominent place in Colts history," Indianapolis owner Jim Irsay said. "He was a very sturdy defensive back who started the 1958 and 1959 NFL championship games for the club. He is remembered among the many notable names in Colts history."
After his playing days, Davis scouted college players for NFL teams. He taught high school in the Los Angeles area before working as a natural history professor at Los Angeles City College from 1964-89. In 1989, he and his wife, Yvonne, retired and moved to Oregon.
In addition to his wife, Davis is survived by daughters Allison and Hilary and son Brian.
