Buffalo Bills Cornerback Vontae Davis quit his team at half time and retired from the game.

His team is currently the worst in the NFL and it does not look like things are getting any better.

They were trailing the Chargers 28-6 at home when Davis, 30, called it quits in the locker room at the interval.

And it seems like he knew what was going to happen because his team lost 31-20 at the final whistle.

However, coach Sean McDermott was far from happy with his decision.

"I don't want to get into that," he told reporters.

Teammate and linebacker Lorenzo Alexander did give more details during the post match interviews.

He said: "Never seen anything like that – Pop Warner, high school, college, pros. Never heard of it, never seen it, and it's just completely disrespectful to his teammates.

"He didn't say nothing to nobody. You know as much as I know. I found out going into the second half. (Guys on the sideline) said he's not coming out, he retired."

Davis played ten season in the NFL including stints for the Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts and Buffalo Bills.

He released a statement on Sunday.

It read in part: This Isn't how I pictured retiring from the NFL

But in my 10th NFL season I have been doing what my body has been programmed to do. Get ready to play on game day. I've endured multiple injuries 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 hard I shouldn't be out there anymore.
