Davis has been out of practice since August 16 due to personal matters and head coach Robert Saleh said Wednesday that Davis could take all the time he needs to return.
Davis told his teammates Tuesday night that he had planned to retire and made the official announcement Wednesday after contemplating retirement for a while.
In two seasons with the Jets, Davis caught 66 passes for 1,028 yards and six touchdowns in 22 games. In his six-year career between the Jets and Titans, Davis played in 78 games and caught 273 passes for 3,879 yards and 17 touchdowns.
The Jets shared a thank you note on Twitter for Davis, wishing him all the best in his post-playing days.
Thank you for everything you've given to the Jets organization, @TheCDavis84.
Wishing you the best, CD 💚
