Fans take aim at Vontae Davis for retiring at halftime of game

Vontae Davis walked out on Bills at halftime — and then retired Bills' Vontae Davis retires at halftime of Sunday's loss to the Chargers
Frederick Owens | 17 September, 2018, 21:57

Bills coach Sean McDermott said that Davis "pulled himself out of the game" and that he also "communicated to us that he was done". And yet, the Bills showed more spark under Allen than they did under Nathan Peterman in a 47-3 season-opening loss at Baltimore a week earlier. "Pop Warner, high school, college, pros".

After 10 years in the league and having secured a one-year deal in February - that included a base salary of $2.25 million, a $1.5 million signing bonus, $2 million guaranteed and additional roster bonuses - Davis abruptly announced Sunday that he was done with football.

Rivers played a near ideal game, completing 23-of-27 passes on the day for 256 yards and three touchdowns.

'This was an overwhelming decision, but I'm at peace with myself and my family, ' Davis, who played at the University of IL, said in a statement tweeted by the NFL. Mentally, I always expect myself to play at a high level.

Vontae Davis has become the target of negativity for his seemingly unprecedented actions during Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He completed 18 of his 33 pass attempts for 245 yards with the one touchdown and two interceptions - giving Allen a low QB rating of 16.1.

Alexander said he found out as he went out to the field for the second half of the game. "He didn't say nothing to nobody", Alexander continued, adding, "You know as much as I know".

"While I was on the field, I just didn't feel right".

"And truthfully, I do not because the season is long, and it's more important for me and my family to walk away healthy than to willfully embrace the warrior mentality and limp away too late", Davis wrote on Sunday night.

McCoy returned and had a 3-yard run on the final snap of the third quarter, before missing the remainder of the game. Groy landed heavily on the left side of McCoy's chest as he was on the ground. But Buffalo lost its first of two challenges that afternoon. He's a 10-year veteran who signed a one-year contract in free agency in March.
