The cornerback also likely cost himself most of the one-year, $5 million contract he signed with the team last February. After being dismantled by the Ravens in Week 1, they were outclassed at home against the Chargers, falling behind 28-6 at the half before losing 31-20. Then and there, midway through the game, Davis chose to quit and retire.

Only two games and the Buffalo Bills are a dumpster fire already.

Davis, 30, started the game but said he "had an honest moment with myself" during it and told the side's coach, Sean McDermott, that he was "done".


Davis said in a statement that "this isn't how I pictured retiring from the National Football League".

After the game, Lorenzo Alexander expressed his displeasure with the timing of Davis' retirement.

"This was an overwhelming decision but I'm at peace with myself", it read. He was traded to the Indianapolis Colts in 2012 and played in Indy until this offseason, when he was signed as a free agent by the Buffalo Bills. But today on the field, reality hit me fast and hard: "I shouldn't be out there anymore", he said in a statement. "And truthfully, I do not because the season is long, and it's more important for me and my family to walk away healthy than to willfully embrace the warrior mentality and limp away too late". "Never seen it. And it's just completely disrespectful to his teammates".
