Fantasy Impact:

“I’ve loved and cherished every moment that we’ve had in Carolina,” Davis said in a video he posted on Twitter (@ThomasDavisSDTM) Wednesday. “Carolina is always going to be home for me and my family, but I’m not retiring. I feel like I have way too much football left in me to walk away from the game right now. I want to keep playing; I’m going to keep playing. Hopefully someone’s going to give me that opportunity. But Panther Nation, just know that in no way did I ever imagine putting on another uniform. Still to this day don’t want to do it, but I want to play football.” Davis has spent his entire 14-year career with the Panthers. Since being drafted 14th overall in 2005, he has 1,111 tackles, 28 sacks and 13 interceptions in 176 games.
