The Carolina Panthers will have linebacker Thomas Davis for just one more season, as he has said he will retire following the 2018 campaign.

On Monday cleaning out his locker after the Panthers 31-26 Wild Card loss to New Orleans, Davis indicated he would be competing for playing time with Shaq Thompson in 2018.

Davis, 34, has played linebacker for the Panthers since 2005, and has been a member of the team for his entire career. He confirmed his decision during an appearance on NFL Network.

Davis has played 13 seasons in the National Football League since being selected No. 14 overall out of Georgia by the Panthers.

Davis was suspended for one game late in the season for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams.

Davis said he made his decision when the team signed him to a contract extension through 2018. "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 the Super Bowl'".

He also has only missed three games in the last six seasons, following his third ACL fix. Over the 15 games he appeared in during the regular season, he recorded 76 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and recovered a fumble.

In 2014, Davis was named the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year.

The news comes four days after he admitted he'll likely play a "reduced role" next year.
