Panthers' Thomas Davis to retire after 2018 season

Panthers’ Thomas Davis to retire after 2018 season	 	 	 			Thomas Davis

Carolina Panthers outside linebacker Thomas Davis has played all 13 of his National Football League seasons with the franchise that drafted him in the first round back in 2005.

"For me, the decision was made when I signed the contract extension". On Friday, Davis told the NFL Network's Brooke Cersosimo that 2018, his 14th season, would be his last. He said he had been seeking an extension through 2019.

"This was a tough year for me", Davis said. "Like, 'This is how long they want me here for, this is how much time I have to dedicate to this organization to try to win the Super Bowl'".

Davis played in and started 15 games this season, only missing Carolina's December 24 game against Tampa Bay while serving a suspension for an illegal hit in the previous week's game.

It's hard to imagine the Carolina Panthers without Thomas Davis, but fans of the team might have to get used to that thought.

Davis, 34, has played linebacker for the Panthers since 2005, and has been a member of the team for his entire career.

"I'm pretty sure coming back next year it'll be in a reduced role", Davis said.

Davis is a two-time Pro Bowler and the 2014-15 Walter Payton Man of the Year. He also came back from three ACL surgeries to be an All-Pro in 2013 and 2015.
