Carolina's elder statesman on defense is in search of a new contract.

Thomas Davis, the Panthers' 34-year-old within linebacker, is entering the final season of the two-year extension signed in 2015. The vet is owed a base salary involving $3. 25 million this time, but told WFNZ in Charlotte which he wants to renegotiate before training camp.

"That's something all players within the last year of their cope, especially for guys who have put up the numbers I've offered and played the way I've played the previous few years, you'd hope something gets resolved, " Davis told your station. "We're not actively talking now, but hopefully we is able to do something before training get away happens. "

One of the remaining vestiges from the pre-Cam years, Davis is a Panthers legend who may have battled back from serious injuries (three ACL surgical procedures) and fought for recognition like a model of excellence in addition to consistency. He has missed only one regular season game in the last four seasons and last but not least earned a first-team All-Pro selection in 2015. Paired with Luke Kuechly, Davis is a key part of one of many league's greatest linebacking duos connected with all-time.

But the future comes for everyone us eventually, and it's nigh pertaining to Davis. The Panthers said this offseason they intend to limit Davis' photos in 2017, in part to give Shaq Thompson more run and also to lessen the load with the vet's shoulders. (Davis replied to that particular decision with a indicated Instagram video of your pet lifting some serious weight loads; the caption read, "The way I visualize it this is another solution to help extend my job. I might play until eventually I'm 37. ")

To stave off extinction, and now earn a whole new deal, Davis must continue to try and do more than what is expected of a sideline-to-sideline linebacker of his age.

However, there's no guarantee normal manager Dave Gettleman may grant Davis his want. In the past, Gettleman has let getting older franchise favorites Steve Johnson and DeAngelo Williams go to Super Bowl contenders in lieu of handing them big agreements. Will the same opt for Davis? Check back in at the conclusion of the month.
