Buffalo Bills cornerback Vontae Davis retired from the NFL at half-time in his side’s 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.
Davis, 30, started the game but said he “had an honest moment with myself” during it and told the side’s coach, Sean McDermott, that he was “done”.
He later issued a statement saying he had not intended to show any disrespect to his team-mates or the coaches.
“This was an overwhelming decision but I’m at peace with myself,”
Some things in life are ok to quit or just say ‘that’s me done.’ The story in todays news of Vontae Davis is incredible.
I don’t follow NFL at all but to quit mid-game in any sport, any job…
Takes guts and conviction.
