Davis, a 30-year-old free agent signing over the offseason, abruptly left the Bills at halftime of a blowout loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, shocking teammates and fans when he put on street clothes and left the stadium altogether without telling his teammates what happened. "He didn't say nothing to nobody", Alexander continued, adding, "You know as much as I know".

"In my 10th National Football League season, I have been doing what my body has been programmed to do: Get ready to play on game day".

'And we pay these players who whine and cry just to end up quitting over our hard working troops who never quit to protect our land? "I'm going to give him a little more respect than what he showed us today, as far as quitting on us in the middle of the game".

Davis took himself out of the game late in the first half, according to head coach Sean McDermott, then abruptly chose to call it a day (and most likely a career) before the second half began.

Davis started the game, but he wasn't spotted on the field or sidelines after the second half.

"Never seen it, ever". Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, who told reporters about his former teammates' mid-game retirement after the game ended, slammed the "completely disrespectful" move.

"Never seen anything like that - Pop Warner, high school, college, pros". They said he's not coming out, he retired.

The numerous developments overshadowed rookie first-round draft pick Josh Allen's debut at quarterback. "While I was on the field, I just didn't feel right, and I told the coaches 'I'm not feeling like myself'".
