Bills CB Vontae Davis decided to retire at halftime against Chargers
Buffalo Bills cornerback Vontae Davis left the team at halftime of their 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Seriously, he just walked out of the building and didn’t look back.
Vontae Davis officially announced his decision to retire following the game:

After signing a one-year deal with Buffalo during the offseason, Davis was a healthy scratch in Week 1, as the Bills started Tre’Davious White and Phillip Gaines at cornerback.
Davis was inserted into the starting lineup Sunday and had two tackles in the opening half.
The 30-year-old veteran is a two-time Pro Bowler who spent the first three seasons of his career with the Miami Dolphins after they selected him in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft.
Davis’ absence will lead to increased work for Gaines, Lafayette Pitts and rookie fourth-round pick Taron Johnson across from White.
