Incredible Scenes As Buffalo Bills Player Quits And Retires At Half-Time

Then and there, midway through the game, Davis made a decision to quit and retire.

Davis signed a one-year deal with the Bills worth up to $5 million, and $3.5 million of it was guaranteed.

Davis started the game, but he wasn't spotted on the field or sidelines after the second half.

Buffalo were trailing 28-6 at half-time, although they partially recovered - sans Davis - to earn a more respectable 31-20 defeat.

Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander told reporters after the loss that Davis actually quit playing football at the half, effectively telling the Bills that he had enough. "When I get back there (to the locker room), we'll continue to communicate and get things figured out".

After the game, Davis released a statement confirming his retirement and explaining his decision.

"This isn't how I pictured retiring from the NFL". He said he did not mean to disrespect anyone but realised during the game that he "should not be out there anymore".

"But I hold myself to a standard". Mentally, I always expect myself to play at a high level. There were roadblocks and pitfalls along the way, but I am grateful to God for all of it because he doesn't promise any of us an easy journey.
