Buffalo Bills' Vontae Davis retires at halftime of game

The Bills trailed 28-6 at half-time when Davis made his decision.

It's unclear if Davis, 30, has retired or not.

Vontae Davis was at the bottom of the television screen, lined up in man coverage on the first series of the Bills' home opener Sunday against the Chargers.

"He communicated to us that he was done", coach Sean McDermott said following the Bills 31-20 loss in Week 2 of the season. Davis signed a one-year deal with Buffalo in February, and because he was on the opening day roster, he still received millions despite him quitting on the squad mid-game.

"Never have seen it ever", linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. [Guys on the sideline] said he's not coming out, he retired. But today on the field, reality hit me fast and hard: "I shouldn't be out there anymore", the statement read.

"This was an overwhelming decision but I'm at peace with myself", it read. He had been in the National Football League since 2009 with the Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts.

"While I was on the field, I just didn't feel right and I told the coaches 'I'm not feeling like myself, '" Davis said. "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".
