Buffalo Bills: 5 players you probably forgot played for the Bills
This may be a case of all parties wishing this player’s run with the Bills is forgotten. However, the circumstances around his departure were certainly memorable.
In 2018, the Buffalo Bills were looking for a veteran cornerback to help solidify the cornerback position opposite Tre’Davious White. This has been a common theme for the Bills since Sean McDermott took over as head coach and there have been some successes like Kevin Johnson last year and E.J. Gaines in 2017 but the signing of Vontae Davis doesn’t fall in that category.
Prior to joining the Bills, Davis spent nine years in the NFL between the Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts. He started 112 games over the stretch and made back to back Pro Bowls in 2014 and 2015,
He played well in training camp and preseason to the point the Bills named him the starter for their opening game against the Los Angeles Chargers. He would go on to play 29 snaps in the first half but that would be the end of his time with the Bills.
Surprisingly, Davis elected to instead of finish the game retire at halftime and leave the stadium before the game was over. After the game, he provided an explanation and said that his body just didn’t feel right.
If he didn’t retire at halftime of his first game with the Bills, Davis’ time with Buffalo would certainly be forgotten.
