Davis, 35, is a former first-round pick of the Panthers back in 2005. He was in the final year of his three-year, $18 million contract that includes $11.5 million guaranteed when he and the Panthers agreed to a one-year, $6.75 million extension through 2018.
The Panthers informed Davis after the 2018 season they would not be bringing him back.
In 2018, Davis appeared in 12 games and recorded 79 tackles, no sacks, two fumble recoveries and six pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 19 linebacker out of 93 qualifying players.
