We guess there will be no retirement tour for veteran defensive back Vontae Davis.
The two-time Pro Bowler, in his 10th season and first with Buffalo, abruptly left Sunday’s 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, saying to one coach, “I’m done.”
With that, he was gone, issuing a statement later.
“This isn’t how I pictured retiring from the NFL,” Davis said in his statement. “But today on the field, reality hit me fast and hard: I shouldn’t be out there anymore. I meant no disrespect to my teammates and coaches … While I was on the field, I just didn’t feel right, and I told the coaches ‘I’m not feeling like myself.'”
Making matters much worse, the Bills dressed only three other corner backs Sunday, and one — Phillip Gaines — left with an injury.
Needless to say a few of his teammates were a little miffed at his abrupt decision.
Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said the move was “completely disrespectful” according to a source close to the action.
Buffalo has suffered a pair of bad defeats to open the season and Davis’ decision to retire added another layer of melodrama.
And the fans can’t even break fold out tables anymore.
