“To be able to play 16 years in this league has truly been a blessing, and I can’t thank God enough for seeing fit to put me in this position to do that,” David said. “To the Carolina fanbase, I just want to say to you guys, you guys have been tremendous throughout my entire career. I can not thank you guys enough for your love and support. I can not wait to sign a one-day (contract) and retire a Panther. Keep pounding.”

Davis said that when the Washington Football Team’s season came to an end, he would retire. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated WFT in the Wild Card Round.

In his career, he appeared in 199 games, including 174 starts. He has had 1,216 tackles, including 90 tackles for a loss and 61 quarterback hits.
