Vontae Davis explains why he retired from the NFL in the middle of a Bills game

There were a lot of crazy moments in the NFL on Sunday, but none of them topped what happened in Buffalo. At halftime of the Bills‘ 31-20 loss to the Chargers, Vontae Davis decided he didn’t want to play football anymore, so he quit the team and retired mid-game

As you can imagine, Davis’ decision didn’t really sit well with anyone in the organization. One teammate called him a quitter, another teammate said it was “disrespectful.” But Davis doesn’t really care what they think. 

After releasing a statement about his decision on Sunday, the defensive back decided to go into more detail this week during a conversation with ESPN’s The Undefeated

During the interview, Davis said he was able to pinpoint the time he made the decision: It came with 47 seconds left in the first half, just after the Bills had cut the lead to 28-6. 

“I went to the bench after that series and it just hit me,” Davis said. “I don’t belong on that field anymore.”

For most of the first half, Davis had felt that something was amiss. “I didn’t feel right, I didn’t feel like myself,” he said.

Just before halftime, Davis went up to Bills defensive backs coach John Butler and told him, “I’m done”

Of course, Butler didn’t really have any idea
