"I meant no disrespect to my teammates and coaches", Davis wrote. "He communicated to us that he was done". Never heard of it. "Never seen it. And it's just completely disrespectful to his teammates". He didn't say nothing to nobody.
Davis started the game, but he wasn't spotted on the field or sidelines after the second half. "He said he's not coming out". Davis signed a one-year deal with Buffalo in February, and because he was on the opening day roster, he still received millions despite him quitting on the squad mid-game. He said after 10 years, multiple surgeries and the latest injuries, he wasn't able to play to his own standards.
Davis released a statement after the game confirming his retirement and explaining his decision to retire. He retired at halftime, announcing later on social media that, "This isn't how I pictured retiring". Mentally, I always expect myself to play at a high level.
This was an overwhelming decision, but I'm at peace with myself and my family.
