Bills player claims cornerback Vontae Davis retired at halftime

Bills head coach 'His actions spoke and I heard everything'

NFL defender Davis quits on Bills in mid-game

While teams don't always look to recoup money when players retire, due to the abrupt and disrespectful nature in which Davis made a decision to leave, you can bet the Bills will do everything they can to get back the money they feel they are owed. Following his halftime retirement, the Bills played much better in the second half, allowing just a field goal while scoring a pair of touchdowns to make the final score a more respectable 31-20.

Before Davis released his statement, Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander told reporters at Ralph Wilson Stadium that he had never seen anything like it. Coming out, they said, 'He's not coming out.

"This isn't how I pictured retiring from the NFL", Davis wrote as part of a long post on the social media platform (see below).
