Vontae Davis Shocks Bills By Retiring At Halftime

Bills head coach 'His actions spoke and I heard everything' NFL defender Davis quits on Bills in mid-game
Frederick Owens | 18 September, 2018, 00:18

Following Buffalo's 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said that, after a rough first half, Davis called it a career before the second half.

According to a report from Spotrac, the Bills have already paid Davis around $4 million through various bonuses and guarantees.

"Reality hit me fast and hard: I shouldn't be out there anymore" is one of the funnier lines we could've imagined here.

Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, teammate of Davis, stated that he didn't know anything until he was told right before the beginning of the second half, that Vontae Davis had quit on the spot and chose to retire.

The Bills also lost cornerback E.J. Gaines to an injury on Sunday, leaving the team even more shallow at defensive back.

Davis released a statement after the game confirming his retirement and explaining his decision to retire.

"I meant no disrespect to my teammates and coaches". Mentally, I always expect myself to play at a high level. "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 ..."

"But I hold myself to a standard".

Davis retired after playing 10 seasons with Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills.
