Mr Johnson's almost two years as foreign secretary was not without controversy, with the ambitious Tory heavyweight having been accused of undermining Mrs May on more than one occasion - and making headlines for other reasons.
However, Mr Davis has said that he is not seeking to trigger a coup to remove the Prime Minister, and Downing Street insiders indicated that he was seen as doing "the honourable thing" in light of Mrs May's announcement that the doctrine of strict collective responsibility was being reimposed on Brexit.
Asked if she could survive, he replied: "Oh yes, of course".
- Why wouldn't they want to challenge Mrs May?
Listen to Theresa May's impassioned address to Parliament today - promising a return to United Kingdom sovereignty after Brexit, yet simultaneously keeping close ties to Europe (no country with an EU association agreement has so far avoided signing up to binding relations), with frictionless trade and a close customs relationship that is not a customs union (honest), while remaining free to strike the UK's own trade deals.
"It's regrettable it hasn't been resolved yet, I think there should be less hype and over spinning and let's focus on detailed negotiations".
Mr Davis said he did not want others to follow him out of Government but added it was a "decision of conscience" that must be made "in their own minds".

"He's been very, very nice to me, very supportive".
Carolyn Fairbairn, director-general of the CBI, said there had been "real rays of light" in the Cabinet agreement on Friday and described the resignation as a "blow".
After the cabinet meeting, May tweeted that she was "looking ahead to a busy week".
A source close to Mr Johnson told FactCheck: "Boris called for change more than a year before European Union measures came into force".
"What Theresa May was trying to do with her proposal last week was to come up with a compromise that would keep all sides on ball within the Conservative party, and clearly that has failed", Clark said.
"This is the right Brexit", she said.
Brexiteer Cabinet minister Michael Gove admitted the Chequers' plan was not everything he had hoped for, but he was a "realist" and the Prime Minister's lack of a Commons majority meant the "Parliamentary arithmetic" was a factor in deciding what could be adopted.
She took a step closer to the brink over the past 48 hours with the help of Boris Johnson and a Brexit song he could not sing.
