Local officials have confirmed his death, stating that while an investigation is being launched, foul play is not currently suspected.

The cause of Davis’ death has not been released.

Davis gained widespread attention in 2018 when he abruptly announced his retirement mid-game, during halftime of Buffalo Bills’ game against the Los Angeles Chargers, shocking his teammates.

NBC News reported:

Former NFL cornerback Vontae Davis was found dead in a Florida mansion, police said Monday.

He was 35.

Officers were called Monday morning to a residence in the 6000 block of SW 178th Avenue by the house assistant, who discovered Davis’ body, the Davie Police Department said in a statement.

“Preliminary information suggests that foul play is not involved,” the department said.

Throughout his decade-long NFL career, Davis participated in 121 games, accumulating a total of 395 tackles and 22 interceptions.

Bobby Maze, a childhood friend of Davis, took to social media to share a heartfelt tribute, reflecting on their shared memories and expressing the profound void left by Davis’s passing. “Life will never be the same without my brother,” Maze mourned.

“Extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Vontae Davis,” Colts’ owner Jim Irsay wrote. “A great guy, teammate, player. My prayers to Vontae’s family.”
