The Panthers tweeted a photo of Davis shortly after the report broke, with the caption "respect".

Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis has decided that he will retire after the 2018 season.

He told that he was looking forward to spending more time with his children. He said he had been seeking an extension through 2019. "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 a Super Bowl, and that's my mindset". "Shaq [Thompson] has definitely earned the right, and when you look at [David] Mayo, he's coming along".

He has 1,015 career tackles, 28 sacks, 13 interceptions, 18 forced fumbles and 9 fumble recoveries.

Davis, 34, has spent the entirety of his 13-year career with the Panthers, who selected him out of Georgia with the 14th overall pick in 2005.

Davis has 13 interceptions and 18 forced fumbles in his career, and he'll be hard to replace for Carolina after the 2018 season.

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. He was also named the Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2014, and he made the Pro Bowl in 2015 and 2016.
