Summary

This could be the last year for Thomas Davis as a Panther, and probably as a football player. The 34-year-old insists he will play out his contractual obligations, which would see him retiring at the end of this season. Davis remains a very productive player for the Panthers, who value his leadership as much as his toughness and physicality. Although he may have lost a step, Davis still has the nous and brain on the field to impact plays and read the game. He will see plenty of tackle opportunity this season, but there is a chance the team gives Shaq Thompson more work as the season goes on, thus reducing Davis' role. Until then, he should be considered a low-end LB2. (May 2)

Panthers | Thomas Davis a priority (Mon Jul 17, 09:34 AM) - Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis, who is in the final year of his contract, is the team's first order of business, according to a source.

Our View: The two sides want the same thing, so it looks like something could get done -- perhaps even before training camp. A first-round pick for the Panthers in 2005, Davis has been a cornerstone for that franchise for over a decade. Any sort of extension should come at a good price with little guaranteed money as Davis is in the twilight of his pro career.
