So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen: Bills CB Quits At Halftime - Permanently

While the Buffalo Bills jogged into the locker room at halftime of their game against the Los Angeles Chargers, cornerback Vontae Davis jogged in, then just kept on going.

How's THAT for a halftime adjustment?

He quit at halftime — a jaw-dropping decision that left his teammates and coaches shaking their heads.

"Pulled himself out of the game. He communicated to us that he was done," coach Sean McDermott said after the Bills fell 31-20.

Later, Davis posted on Twitter that he was, in fact, calling it a career.

"This isn't how I pictured retiring from the NFL," he wrote. "But today on the field, reality hit me and hard. I shouldn't be out there anymore."

And so, he left.
