Bills player claims cornerback Vontae Davis retired at halftime

Bills cornerback leaves and retires in middle of game

Head coach Sean McDermott spoke at his press conference and was reluctant to go into the details.

Cornerback Vontae Davis, a 30-year-old veteran, had not only withdrawn from a game on Sunday, but also from his National Football League career.

That's because the 30-year-old retired at halftime, a fact he confirmed in a statement posted on the NFL's Twitter account.

"But today on the field, reality hit me fast and hard: I shouldn't be out there anymore", Davis said.

"This was an overwhelming decision but I'm at peace with myself", it read.

One half after a 47-3 shellacking at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, the Bills trailed the Los Angeles Chargers 28-6 at halftime.




While the importance of self-care cannot be stressed enough, some of Davis's teammates still couldn't quite grasp the sudden retirement.

"I never have seen that".

Davis was the first round pick of the Dolphins in 2009 and played for Miami through 2012. Pop Warner, high school, pros.

"It's just completely disrespectful to his teammates", Alexander said.

"I'm going to give him a little bit more respect than he showed us today, as far as quitting on us in the middle of the game". "He said he's not coming out".
