ORCHARD PARK, N.Y — Vontae Davis began Sunday as a defensive back for the Buffalo Bills. He ended the day retired from football, stunning his coaches and teammates by calling it a career in the middle of the game.

At halftime, with the Bills trailing 28-6, Davis up and quit. Quit. He wasn’t hurt, he hadn’t been benched by coach Sean McDermott. He just picked up his ball and went home.

“Pulled himself out of the game,” McDermott said. “He communicated to us that he was done.”

 

My guess is that he stared at the long season ahead and just felt like he didn't want to suffer any more. First time I have heard of something like this.

At least he's honest and didn't want to steal a paycheck.

"He's the future," safety Eric Weddle said. "As you guys can tell, he's devastated right now and that's what is going to drive him in the offseason. He'll come back 10 times better than he was this year. He's going to be a great one. I can't wait to see where his career ends up."

Except he got over $2mil in garaunteed money.
