"I meant no disrespect to may teammates and coaches", Davis continued. "But I think he's got the right approach". "It's just completely disrespectful to his teammates". That's what the veteran cornerback said after making the unusual decision to retire at halftime of Buffalo's loss to the Chargers Sunday.
McDermott revealed he took over the defensive play-calling duties from coordinator Leslie Frazier to start the second half.
If this is truly it for Davis, he retires with a 10-year National Football League career that saw the 2009 first round pick make two Pro Bowl teams and bring in 22 interceptions.
Davis took himself out of the game late in the first half, according to head coach Sean McDermott, then abruptly made a decision to call it a day (and most likely a career) before the second half began.
"It felt good because that just showed us what type of offence we can be", said Gordon, who left with just over 11 minutes remaining.
Davis was a surprise omission for the Bills' season-opening 47-3 loss at Baltimore last week, despite his coach saying he was not injured at the time. Never heard of it.
The Bills are now 0-2, having been outscored 78-23.
Teammates were shocked and stunned.
Tackle Kyle Williams said he's never encountered a player ever quitting on a team during a game. Last season marked the first in Davis' career that he did not record an interception.
The Bills provided Davis a chance to re-start his career by signing him to a one-year contract in March after a dispute with former Colts coach Chuck Pagano led to Indianapolis cutting him in November.
