LB Davis Feels a New Deal is Coming Before Camp

Wild Card Playoffs - Arizona Cardinals v Carolina Panthers

Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis preemptively told a reporter Thursday he didn’t have any information on his negotiations on a long-term extension, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

And while the talks have not yet produced a signed contract, Davis remains hopeful a deal will be finalized before the start of training camp at the end of July.

“Sure, absolutely. That’s why we’re working on it, to try to get it done,” Davis said. “We’re not just working on it to say we’re working on it. I feel like it will be something that will be done probably before we go to camp, but we’ll see.”

Davis, 32, is entering the final year of a contract that will pay him $7.25 million this year, with a salary cap number of $9.9 million. The NFL’s reigning Man of the Year has said he would have retired rather than play for another team had the Panthers not picked up the two-year club option in 2013.

Davis expressed confidence Thursday that the Panthers would present a fair deal.

“I feel like they will,” he said.
