As far as veteran linebacker Thomas Davis is concerned, it's either play for the Carolina Panthers or nothing else.

Davis told The Charlotte Observer he would rather retire than play for another team.

Davis has endured three torn anterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee.

The Panthers haven't turned their back on him, allowing him to rehabilitate his injuries and they picked up the option in his contract for two years and paid him a $5 million bonus following last season.

“If I’m going to play football and represent an organization, it’s going to be with the team that stuck beside me and never gave up on me,” Davis said. “My mindset right now is, I’m going to play for the Carolina Panthers or I’m done playing football. ..

“It was up to them to make the decision whether they wanted to keep me around. And fortunately enough for me I played well enough for them to bring me back.”
