We wanted to wait a couple of days to see if this would stick. Even after it was posted on his social media, we still wanted to wait. It was just too bizarre.

As regular visitors to Notinhalloffame.com are aware, every time a significant player from anyone of the big four North American leagues (MLB, NHL, NFL, NFL) we comment on it as the Hall of Fame eligibility clock begin, whether or not they have a legitimate chance or not.   As such we are ready to discuss Vontae Davis’ retirement from professional football.

First off, the retirement of Davis came at halftime of his Buffalo Bills game against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Cornerback pulled himself out of the game telling his coach and teammates that he was done and he did not come out to play in the second half and was not in the locker room at the end of the game.

He released a statement on social media where he discussed that he felt he felt he “should no longer be out there anymore” and that he is unable to play up to a “high level”. While Vontae Davis decreed in his statement that he did not mean any disrespect to his teammates, there were some Buffalo Bills who did voice feeling disrespected and like it or not this is how he is going to be remembered more than anything else he did in his career.

This is not a career backup or one game wonder we are talking about here. Davis was a two time Pro Bowl Selection when he was with Indianapolis and he is a ten year veteran with 22 career Interceptions, but this will likely be the most famous thing he will ever do in football.

While we hate how he ended his career we wish Vontae David the best in his post-playing career…which began at halftime.
