Bills head coach: 'His actions spoke and I heard everything'

Bills head coach: 'His actions spoke and I heard everything'

Veteran cornerback Vontae Davis walked into the locker room at halftime against the Chargers with the Bills trailing 28-6. 

Davis took his pads off, changed into his street clothes and quit the team all together.

This is a baffling situation, one that more resembles a petulant child who didn't get his orange slices in a peewee football game rather than a professional in the NFL. 

Davis was inactive and did not play in the week one loss to Baltimore, but what makes this even more confusing is that he was one of the starting corners in Sunday's game. 

Now, a full day after Davis quit on his team and retired from football during halftime, his now-former head coach admits the team is ready to move on. 

"There's no need to address it because we're moving on. That's what a team does. This is not going to become a distraction for us," admitted head coach Sean McDermott, adding, "We're going to move forward. His actions spoke and I heard everything he needed to say through that. I have a lot of respect for Vontae. He's a good person. I certainly appreciate the way he worked when he was in here but we're moving forward as a football team."
