"I knew I wasn't going to sign an extension and that my time in New Orleans was definitely coming to an end," Davis told ESPN. "And, you know, I see a lot of people that say 'wait' or 'you should have did it this way, that way.'

"But for me, I've been in the league long enough. I'm a grown man. I know what I want. And so I thought doing it at that time was definitely going to be beneficial for myself and for the organization to get the best package available, so that way the organization is still set."

Davis, 26, added that he loves the city of New Orleans but knew "it was time for me to move on."

"Sometimes I had to tell him, like, 'Rob, I'm in the movies.' He'd be like, 'All right, well, call me as soon as you get out,'" Davis told ESPN. "But we're trying to put the best team around us, and I think he did a great job of doing it."

“Everyone wants to be the best in the league.
