UPDATE (7:50 p.m. ET): Vontae Davis released a statement following Buffalo’s 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams when the cornerback left during halftime and did not return to the field.
ORIGINAL STORY: The Buffalo Bills are off to a rough start this season.
The team suffered an embarrassing 47-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1 before dropping their home opener Sunday to the Los Angeles Rams, 31-20.
To add to the abysmal start, a weird incident took place Sunday at New Era Field that had the NFL world scratching their heads.
Cornerback Vontae Davis apparently had enough of the struggling team, removed himself at halftime and retired from the league.
“He pulled himself out of the game,” head coach Sean McDermott said, via NFL.com’s Austin Knoblauch. “He told us he was done.”
It’s certainly an odd move and only adds to the struggles the Bills have faced so far this season. Davis signed a one-year deal with Buffalo in February, but it seems as if the 0-2 start and a struggling defense was enough to push the 30-year-old out the door.
At least he’ll be getting his full salary he signed on for.
And thanks to the power of social media, some of Davis’ old tweets surfaced after it was discovered he called it quits.
Unless you play for the Bills, though, right?
