Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis: 2018 to be last season

Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis: 2018 to be last season

Through 12 seasons, Davis is the Panthers' all-time leading tackler with 1,163.

Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis jokes at times that he's a "lifer" in Charlotte, and based on a report from NFL Media on Friday, he will end up as one.

Davis had said this week that he expects his role to be reduced next season, and he anticipated that it would be reduced further in 2019.

Davis is referring to Shaq Thompson, Carolina's first-round pick in the 2015 draft. "Shaq has earned the right".

For me, I really can't see me playing past the 2018 season.

Davis cited the desire to spend more time with his kids after fulfilling his contract with the Panthers, which runs through 2018 after an extra year was tacked on to the deal in August. "Dealing with a bunch of injuries and not being able to go out there and perform like I know I'm capable of performing until the last couple of weeks of the season". He also came back from three ACL surgeries to be an All-Pro in 2013 and 2015.

In 2014, Davis was named the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year. He's seventh in team history with 13 career interceptions and eighth with 28 sacks.

Davis scored his first-career touchdown on a fumble recovery and return against the Arizona Cardinals in 2016.
