If you have not heard now, Vontae Davis retired from NFL on Sunday.
How he did, however, broke some eyebrows because Buffalo Bill's cornerback chose to retire halfway off the loss of Bills & # 39; Week 2 to Los Angeles Chargers. He released a statement on his Twitter account Sunday evening and on Wednesday he said he did not regret how he left the game.
"Leaving was Therapeutic, Bridge. I left everything that the league wanted me to play, playing for my teammates while injured, the gladiator's mentality, it was just to pop up," said Davis The Undefeated Domonique Foxworth . "And when it popped, I just wanted to leave it all behind. So that's why I do not care what people say. That experience was personal and not meant for anyone else to understand. I called cold turkey that left an identity as I carried with me for so long. "
Davis signed a one-year, 5 million dollar deal with Buffalo in February. The two-time Pro Bowler spent the previous six seasons with Indianapolis Colts. But at the age of 30 he suddenly decided to hang up his bricks and noted that he "did not expect" his teammates to understand his decision.
"That moment was also shocking to me," said Davis.
It was really an oorthodox way to retire, but Davis seems quite happy with his decision.
