Cornerback Vontae Davis shocked the world in week two’s fixtures when he quit his Buffalo Bills’ teammates at half-time.

The Bills were trailing the Chargers 28-6 when the cornerback suddenly picked his ball and walked off the stadium. He wasn’t hurt. He wasn’t benched. He simply walked off and called it quit.

When Coach Sean McDermott was asked if there was anything wrong with Vontae, he replied,

“No, pulled himself out of the game. He communicated to us that he was done.”

McDermott said he would get in touch with the former cornerback for more information.

“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.”

In 2017, Davis spent the better part of the season sidelined with a serious groin injury that forced him to have surgery. He didn’t appear much during the offseason program. During the preseason, the cornerback continued to struggle in the sidelines. Coach McDermott decided to bench him during week 1 as the Bills player Baltimore.

On Sunday, the 30-year old was started in place of rookie Taron Johnson who was out with an injury.

Davis released a statement afterward thanking his teammates and explaining why he decided to retire the way he did.

“This isn’t how I pictured retiring from the NFL,” part of the statement read. But today on the field, reality hit me fast and hard: I shouldn’t be out there anymore.”

Although his coach was dismayed, it was Davis’ teammates that seemed angered the most. The Bills also struggled after the cornerback’s unexpected retirement. They lost 31-20.
