Fans and teammates were quite confused as they came to play the second half of the game against the Los Angeles Charges. During an interview, linebacker for the Bills, Lorenzo Alexander said, “Never have seen it ever,” Alexander said. “Pop Warner, high school, college, pros. Never heard of it. Never seen it. And it’s just completely disrespectful to his teammates. … He didn’t say nothing to nobody. … I found out going into the second half of the game. They said he’s not coming out, he retired. That’s it.”
