Buffalo Bills player Vontae Davis quits the whole sport at halftime

Bills head coach 'His actions spoke and I heard everything' NFL defender Davis quits on Bills in mid-game

Buffalo was losing to the Los Angeles Chargers 28 to 6 at halftime and had lost their season opener to the Baltimore Ravens 47 to 3.

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

When it comes to the salary cap, Spotrac notes that, for now, the Bills remain on the hook for the entire $4.3 million hit, even if the team moves him to their reserve/ retired list. When I get back there, we'll continue to communicate and get things sorted out.

Following the game, Davis released a statement explaining that he physically wasn't simply cut out for the world of football anymore, and that he meant no disrespect to his teammates.

Davis started the game, but he wasn't spotted on the field or sidelines after the second half.

A Buffalo Bills player made a decision to pack it in and call it a career right in the middle of Sunday's game. He said after 10 years, multiple surgeries and the latest injuries, he wasn't able to play to his own standards.

"This isn't how I pictured retiring from the NFL". Mentally, I always expect myself to play at a high level. The veteran cornerback apparently retired mid-game on Sunday.

This was an overwhelming decision, but I'm at peace with myself and my family.
