The Broward County Office of Medical Examiner and Trauma Services stated on Monday that it may take up to 90 days to ascertain the cause of Davis’ death, pending a comprehensive examination and additional tests.

Davis gained attention in 2018 when, as a member of the Buffalo Bills, he unexpectedly retired during halftime of a September game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

In a statement issued following the game, he clarified that his decision was not meant to disrespect his teammates and coaches. However, he expressed feeling unsettled while on the field that Sunday and questioned his desire to continue playing.

“And truthfully, I do not because the season is long, and it’s more important for me and my family to walk away healthy than to willfully embrace the warrior mentality and limp away too late,” he said in the statement.

“We are saddened to learn of the passing of Vontae Davis,” the Bills said in a statement posted to social media. “We are thinking of his friends, family, and loved ones during this difficult time.”
