Buffalo Bills veteran cornerback Vontae Davis quit during halftime of a game on Sunday and retired from football afterward. "This team is going to get better because of it. Watch what happens". "When I get back there (to the locker room), we'll continue to communicate and get things figured out". "Today on the field, reality hit me fast and hard: I shouldn't be out there anymore".

"Let's be honest. Vonte Davis did exactly what every Bills fan did near the end of the first half", reads another.

Davis tweeted out the following, before quickly deleting it seconds later.

The Suns finished dead last in the Western Conference last season with the worst record in the National Basketball Association . During his second season with the Suns, the 21-year-old Chriss averaged 7.7 points , 5.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 72 games .

Although Davis said in his statement he meant no disrespect to his teammates and coaches, linebacker Lorenzo Alexander called the midgame decision "completely disrespectful" to the team. "The Vontae situation, his actions have spoken, he's retired". He went through that in the third week of the preseason, so I thought that did help him in his preparation process.

Frazier, who said Monday he was caught off guard by the decision, added that he spoke to Davis on the bench before a series but did not specify when that occurred in the game. The reasons and the outcomes vary - some players eventually returned, but some were never seen in the same uniform again.
