These Old Vontae Davis Tweets About Never Quitting Are Pure Comedy After He Retired At Halftime
In the words of the great late Jimmy Valvano, “Never give up. Never give up…unless your team is down 28-6 to the Chargers in Week 2.”
Buffalo Bills veteran cornerback Vontae Davis pulled one of the most egregious moves you’ll ever hear in sports: retiring at halftime of a blowout game.
Said Bills head coach Sean McDermott:
“[He] pulled himself out of the game. He communicated to us that he was done.”
The 30-year-old began putting his street clothes on at halftime, said he was quitting, and left the stadium before his team took to the sidelines for the second half.
The two-time Pro Bowler played 10 seasons in the NFL and had signed a one-year, $5 million deal with Buffalo that he evidently has no intention of honoring.
After his unorthodox retirement, people began mining motivational tweets from Davis that flew in the face of his actions Sunday. Tweets like: “The Road To Success Is Hard That’s Why Alot Of ppl Quit On That Road. Don’t U Be 1 Of Them, Keep Going!”
Welp, more tweets have surfaced where Davis emphatically denounces quitting, regardless of circumstance. Spoiler Alert: They age poorly.
Davis released a statement last night trying to defend his actions but walking out of the stadium at halftime when you’re getting paid millions for your services is all I hear.
I’m still trying to figure out if I think this guy is the biggest legend of all-time or the biggest baby. I think a little of both.
