It's 930. In 716. The hills are trending but not because of a wind. It was a Vontae Davis making all the headlines. Well thought out game. He communicated to us he has done is just completely disrespectful when his team he never heard anything like that so. You know I think the only things I guess he's where he needs right. I'm Jim winder on 930 and 716. How zephyr halftime adjustment while the rest of the Buffalo Bills jogged into the locker room at halftime of their game against CLA chargers out Orchard Park. Cornerback Vontae Davis jogging and then just kept on going he quit at halftime as you've no doubt heard. A movie later explained was not how he pictured retiring from the NFL. Here's his complete statement tweet it out by the NFL shortly following the bills lost to the LA chargers on Sunday he says. This isn't how I pictured retiring from the NFL. But in my tenth NFL season I've been doing what my body has been programmed to do get ready to play on game day. I've endured multiple surgeries and played through many different injuries. Throughout my career and over the last few weeks this was the latest physical challenge. But today on the field really hit me fast and hard I shouldn't be out there anymore. I meant no disrespect to my teammates and coaches but I hold myself to a standard. Mentally I always expect myself to play at a high level but physically I know today that isn't possible and I had an honest moment with myself. While I was on the field I just didn't feel right and I told the coaches I'm not feeling like myself. I also wondered. Do I want to keep sacrificing. In truthfully I do not because the season is long and it's more important to me in my family to walk away healthy. The two will fully embrace the warrior mentality in limbo way too late. This wasn't overwhelming decision but I'm at peace with myself and my family. I choose to be grateful to god for allowing me to play the game that I have loved as a boy until I turned thirty years old. I chose to be grateful to god for being a part of the NFL and making lifelong friends over the last decade. There were roadblocks and pitfalls along the way but I am grateful to god for all event because he doesn't promise any of us any easy journey. Lastly I am grateful to god for what he has in store for me ahead. In this next chapter of my life signed Vontae Davis. Wow. Here's coach McDermott it. Schools are waiting to be communicated to us is done. User case. With her. So. There no when I get back in here we'll continue to communicate. Almost where exactly is going on there and and and go from there. I was against which had a better answer for you right now I'm just gonna have problems and still we just got an. Teammates were perplexed and disappointed. Lorenzo Alexander and Kyle Williams vocal in the locker room or anything like that you're gonna never seen it ever pop Warner high school college. Crawl never heard of it never seen it. And is just completely dismissed. It went his teammate to these things you did it better than anybody anything that nobody left. When he asked you know as much as I know I know I am now going in the second half began. Come announce anything he's not coming out in fact. We'll see what saint John's errors on I mean I think everybody conceded that he went back. Never heard anything like that so. You know I think the only thing this thing is he's where he's been right. That's yours positive is that we. Did you play it's like you can you describe the scene like what exactly I don't know I'm out of here until now to begin on our. Audiences take place I thought process was. Tom how disappointing is that because an enthusiasm. You guys trust these guys you know yeah I think I have yet I think that's that's that's a hard work. You can't really record. Would he be welcome to. I'm here. We want to count. All depends on the depends on you you know exact details. It's amazing it's inexcusable it's. It stood despicable that he would do at halftime but that under current think like that. Bills play by play man John Murphy well speechless and his broadcast partner mark Kelso stunned his well. Here so only frustration and you don't know how much biting at everybody in order everybody to be on the same page in the water but it would be all here. And apparently that was not the case and they are suspect there's a little bit more going on behind the scenes that. That that were not aware of what it's biscuit it was bizarre. And eight you're just up and you're not still may be felt like he was. In cable playing at the level he was accustomed to a man and you use your fantasy game yes conversations with your teammates and coaches but. Certainly no conduct yourself that way it is it is they get something that was very very extremely unusable. You know without Vontae Davis. Mirth Howard the bills at cornerback. Well they've been short in numbers there for the first few gains. Because of injury between yesterday's game without Karen that are all more. And that makes sure you know they trust for healthy quarterback yesterday and then when Davis. Checked out there at number three so there's gonna need to numbers circuit LB hurry. In true Vontae Davis form. Will do is walk away early today and we're back tomorrow. That's 930 and 716. We're back tomorrow with a net irritation from the studios of WD EA and buffalo well.
