It wasn’t quite a Vontae Davis, in the middle of a game, but another veteran cornerback has surprisingly stepped away.
“Today i retire, today my nfl journey ends, and i thank god for keep me all these years,” he wrote. “A kid with one kid and no college offers lasted 11 years in the NFL. . . . I’m at peace with my decision. Y’all may not understand and that’s kool!!”
The decision is a curious one, even though he didn’t play a single defensive snap in Sunday’s loss to the Colts.
The former Cardinals first-rounder also played for the Eagles, Broncos, and Giants before signing on as part of the Raiders offseason acquisitions of veterans.
