Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis: 2018 to be last season

Thomas Davis: 2018 will be my last season

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.

He tore his ACL three different times, and he became the first professional athlete to return and play after three ACL tears.

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. "Shaq [Thompson] has definitely earned the right, and when you look at [David] Mayo, he's coming along". I signed on for a one-year extension, and I want to complete that.

But he also admitted this week to playing with a rib injury for much of the season.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Davis told a reporter that the 2018 season will be the final season of his career.


He also has only missed three games in the last six seasons, following his third ACL fix.

He was selected to Pro Bowls in 2015 and 2016, and named 1st-team All-Pro in 2015, and famously played Super Bowl 50 with a broken arm.

A two-time Pro Bowler and Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2014, Davis will leave a lasting legacy on the Panthers organization.

He finished 2017 with 76 tackles (five for loss), 2.5 sacks and seven QB hits.
