Vontae Davis spent six years with the Indianapolis Colts before signing with the Buffalo Bills as a free agent

Bills cornerback Vontae Davis made the most unorthodox exit Sunday when said he "was done" and left a game against the Chargers at halftime. This is not going to become a distraction for us", admitted head coach Sean McDermott, adding, "We're going to move forward.

It's unclear if Davis, 30, has retired or not. But today on the field, reality hit me fast and hard: "I shouldn't be out there anymore", the statement read. Davis was drafted by the Dolphins in the first round of the 2009 National Football League draft.

U.S. House panel backs bill to make Trump tax cuts permanent
Bill Pascrell of New Jersey to repeal the cap on federal deductions for state and local taxes that came in the new tax law. A committee-level vote is being planned by the House tax committee Chairman Kevin Brady on Thursday, Sept. 13.

While the importance of self-care cannot be stressed enough, some of Davis's teammates still couldn't quite grasp the sudden retirement. I meant no disrespect to my team-mates and coaches.

"Never have seen it ever - Pop Warner, high school, college, pros - never heard of it, never seen it", Bills player Lorenzo Alexander said. Coming out, they said, 'He's not coming out. It's just that he holds himself to a certain standard and he was underperforming. "This was an overwhelming decision, but I'm at peace with myself and my family". But, physically, I know today that isn't possible and I had an honest moment with myself. The Bills were down 28-6 at the time, so some frustrations may well have boiled over, but this goes above and beyond mere frustration.
