Just when you think your life couldn’t possibly get any worse, just be thankful you aren’t a Bills fan. Vontae Davis would rather get a jump start on the next chapter in his life than sacrifice 17 weeks in Buffalo to make $4.3 million.
Quite honestly, this is a pretty ridiculous decision on his part. How can you say no to that money when you’re at the end of your career? It’s not like this is LeBron James or Tom Brady who sneeze and make $4.3 million. I cannot imagine playing in Buffalo for a minute, but from the way Davis’ statement reads, it sounds like he hung it up because of the way he felt physically.
At the same time, as much as his words say “it’s not you, it’s me,” he quit MID-GAME. Hard to imagine he’d pull something like this on a team that’s actually competing.
