Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reports that the Carolina Panthers have picked up LB Thomas Davis‘ options for the 2014 and 2015 season.
- PFT adds that Davis will now make $13.5 million over next two years.
Davis, 30, still has two years remaining on his five-year, $36.5 million contract that he signed with the Panthers back in 2011.
Davis managed to come back from three ACL injuries in a matter of two years and still play at a high level for the league’s best defenses. He finished the season with 123 tackles, four sacks, two interceptions and a forced fumble.
Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 3 outside linebacker in a 4-3 system last year.
