Thomas Davis: 2018 will be final season in NFL

The Carolina Panthers will have linebacker Thomas Davis for just one more season, as he has said he will retire following the 2018 campaign.

Davis has played 13 seasons in the NFL since being selected No. 14 overall out of Georgia by the Panthers.

He racked up 76 tackles and 2.5 sacks this past season. Over the course of his career Thomas has 1,019 tackles to his credit, along with 28 sacks and 13 interceptions.

He’s never played for another team and has racked up two Pro Bowl nods and one First-Team All-Pro season (2015). Davis has also been awarded the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award (2014) and helped the Panthers reach Super Bowl 50, even while playing through a broken arm.
