Vontae Davis walked out on Bills at halftime - and then retired

Vontae Davis #22 of the Buffalo Bills during pre-game warmups prior to the start of NFL game action against the Los Angeles Chargers at New Era Field

Playing for the woebegone Bills may not have proved too much for Vontae Davis, but trying to do so with a body badly damaged over nine-plus National Football League seasons apparently was.

Davis said he meant no disrespect to Bills players and coaches.

"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.

"I think the only thing to say is he's where he needs to be right now", tackle Kyle Williams said. Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, who told reporters about his former teammates' mid-game retirement after the game ended, slammed the "completely disrespectful" move. That's what the veteran cornerback said after making the unusual decision to retire at halftime of Buffalo's loss to the Chargers Sunday. I found out going into the second half of the game.

Vontae Davis has become the target of negativity for his seemingly unprecedented actions during Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Buffalo Bills veteran cornerback Vontae Davis created a significant stir by leaving the team at halftime, coach Sean McDermott said.

The two-time Pro Bowler signed a one-year, $5 million contract with a $1.5 million signing bonus and $3.5 million guaranteed.

"It felt good because that just showed us what type of offence we can be", said Gordon, who left with just over 11 minutes remaining.

The Bills lost to the Chargers, 30-21, to drop to 0-2 on the season. Never heard of it.

Safety Rafael Bush echoed Alexander's sentiments. "The two interceptions were just two plays that I could have changed".

Davis was a 2009 first-round draft pick by Miami and played three seasons (2009-11) with the Dolphins before suiting up for the Colts for the following six seasons.
