Vontae Davis

On Sunday, September 16, The Buffalo Bills took on the San Diego Chargers. The game was a normal football game until halftime came along.  Vontae Davis, a defensive back for the Buffalo Bills, quit, or retired in the middle of a NFL game, which shook his teammates and coaches. When someone asked the coach if Davis was hurt,  “No,” the coach said. “When I get back in (to his office), we’ll continue to communicate on what exactly is going on there and we’ll go from there. I wish I had a better answer for you right now, I’m just being up front.” Davis’s teammate Lorenzo Alexander said “Never have seen it, Pop Warner, high school, college, pros, never heard of it, never seen it,” he said. “Completely disrespectful to his teammates. He didn’t say nothing to nobody. You know as much as I know. I found out going out for the second half of the game. They said he’s not coming out, he retired. That’s it.” Therefore, the 2x pro bowl cornerback, after 10 seasons, retired at half time of a game.
