Bills safety Vontae Davis quits, retires at halftime of game against Chargers

Buffalo Bills cornerback Vontae Davis retires mid-game against Los Angeles Chargers

The Buffalo Bills went into halftime of Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers down 28-6.

"You know I got to be better with the pass protection, I got to be better with getting the ball out quicker and ultimately taking care of the football", Allen said.

Davis played just five games in 2017 with the Indianapolis Colts before suffering a torn groin muscle.

Vontae Davis confirmed reports that his playing career is over.

"And truthfully, I do not because the season is long, and it's more important for me and my family to walk away healthy than to willfully embrace the warrior mentality and limp away too late", Davis wrote on Sunday night.

Davis took himself out of the game late in the first half, according to head coach Sean McDermott, then abruptly made a decision to call it a day (and most likely a career) before the second half began.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Sunday that his understanding, per a source, was that Davis "put on his street clothes at half, said he was quitting and left the stadium". Pop Warner, high school, pros.

Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander told reporters that the move was "completely disrespectful to his teammates". [Guys on the sideline] said he's not coming out, he retired.

Saying he had "nothing to say" about Davis, Alexander added, "I'm going to give him a little bit more respect than he showed us today, as far as quitting on us in the middle of the game".

Buffalo signed Davis to a one-year, $2.5 million deal in February that included a $1.5 million signing bonus. Never heard of it. "But I think he's got the right approach". Unfortunately, a false start by tackle Dion Dawkins and Allen being sacked for an 8-yard loss on third down led to Buffalo settling for Stephen Hauschka hitting a 40-yard field goal.
