CB Vontae Davis retires at halftime of Bills' loss to Chargers

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon isn't concerned about an injury that sidelined him for much of the fourth quarter against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. "Nah, it's just a little upper body, but I'll be straight," Gordon said. Whatever pain there might have been was offset by Gordon matching a career high by scoring three touchdowns, and the Chargers holding off a late Bills comeback attempt to secure a 31-20 win. "It felt good because that just showed us what type of offense we can be," said Gordon, who left with just over 11 minutes remaining. "It's...

Bills can recoup nearly all of Vontae Davis contract money following retirement

Bills can recoup nearly all of Vontae Davis contract money following retirement

Financially speaking, Davis retiring is better than them releasing him. The Buffalo Bills protected themselves in the contract they gave Vontae Davis this offseason, building in several per-game roster bonuses so the veteran only saw the full contract amount if he played in all 16 games. After his abrupt retirement Sunday, that’s not the only money Buffalo will be able to go after. According to former agent Joel Corry, Davis’s retirement voids nearly all the guarantees on his contract. He’ll get paid 15/17ths of what was supposed to be his fully guaranteed 2018 salary but Buffalo will...

Vontae Davis quits on Bills, tarnishes legacy

Vontae Davis quits on Bills, tarnishes legacy

The talented cornerback erased years of quality play on the field by abandoning his teammates. Vontae Davis spent 10 years building his football legacy, earning two Pro Bowl honors and finishing as the league’s second-best cornerback in 2014, according to Pro Football Focus. Whatever sort of legacy he created during his first 10 years in the league was forever tarnished and destroyed with one cowardly gesture Sunday afternoon. As the Buffalo Bills (0-2) returned to New Era Field for the second half of their home opener, a 31-20 setback to the Los Angeles Chargers, they did it with Davis,...
