Thomas Davis to retire after 2018 season

The NFL reported Friday that Thomas Davis of the Carolina Panthers plans to retire after the 2018 NFL season. We'll see if the team can get him a ring before he leaves.

The Panthers were eliminated from postseason play by the New Orleans Saints this year, but they have a squad that could return to the playoffs next year. "I had a huge setback early in the season with the rib injury that caused a lot of problems for me". He also came back from three ACL surgeries to be an All-Pro in 2013 and 2015. "Dealing with a bunch of injuries and not being able to go out there and perform like I know I'm capable of performing until the last couple of weeks of the season".

Davis told Brooke Cersosimo of NFL Media that 2018 will be his final season as an NFL player.

Davis, who will turn 35 in March, will forever be known as the first National Football League player to come back from three anterior cruciate ligament tears in the same knee and as the 2014 Walter Payton Man of the Year.
