Carolina Panthers veteran linebacker Thomas Davis said he doesn't want to end his career in 2018 "on a sour note" due to his four-game suspension. "I'd like to come back (after 2018) if the team will gave me back," Davis said. In his prime, Davis was a tackling machine, racking up 100-plus tackle seasons from 2012 to 2016. He had just 76 tackles in 2017, though, and the 35-year-old is expected to be more of a rotation player moving forward.
Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis said he is open to playing past the 2018 season. "I'm very open to the possibility of playing next season," said Davis. "You haven't been listening. I'm VERY OPEN." The 35-year-old Davis posted 100-tackle seasons from 2012 to 2016 with the Panthers and was one of the very best linebackers in the league. However, he dipped to just 76 tackles in 2017 and is expected to play more of a rotation role this season in order to keep him fresh and healthy. That obviously hurts his IDP value.
Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis said that the 2018 season will be his last year in the NFL. Davis has been one of the best linebackers in the NFL over the last several seasons alongside Luke Kuechly in Carolina, but the veteran will be 35 next year and is already resigned to the fact that he'll take on a lesser role in favor of younger defenders in 2018. Davis had over 100 combined tackles the previous five seasons, but he managed only 76 in 2016 to go along with 2.5 sacks. His IDP value will take another significant hit if he's just a part-time player next year.
