Vontae Davis leaves midgame: Bills CB retires during vs. Chargers

Vontae Davis leaves midgame: Bills CB retires during vs. Chargers

Only two games and the Buffalo Bills are a dumpster fire already.

In no surprise, the Bills used that vacant spot to sign a cornerback and a familiar one at that.

"I meant no disrespect to my teammates and coaches", Vontae Davis said.

The 30-year-old, a first-round pick in 2009 by the Dolphins, would finish his career after 113 games and 22 interceptions.

According to his statement, Vontae said he realized he "shouldn't be out there anymore" so he put a condo on his wrist and cashed out at halftime. "They don't owe him anything, and they're probably pissed", Corry said. ESPN had reported that McDermott said "When I get back in here we'll continue to communicate on exactly what is going on here and we'll go from there" on how he's going to address the situation. But, physically, I know today that isn't possible and I had an honest moment with myself.

"The @Bills defense has only given up 3 points since Vonte Davis retired".

"While I was on the field, I just didn't feel right". He had played with the Colts since 2012.

"I also wondered: Do I want to keep sacrificing", Davis continued.

"It's more important for me and my family to walk away healthy than to wilfully embrace the warrior mentality and limp away too late", he added.
