  • Thomas Davis: Cut by Washington, career over

    Washington released Davis (knee) on Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Davis missed Washington's final three games of the 2020 season -- including a playoff loss to the Buccaneers -- due to a knee injury. The transaction was simply procedural, as Davis was set to become a free agent in March and had already announced plans to retire. Assuming Davis doesn't have a change of heart, he'll end his NFL career with 1,216 tackles, 55 pass breakups, 29 sacks and 13 interceptions over 199 regular-season games. According to Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer, Davis will soon sign a one-day contract with the Panthers to retire with the team that drafted him.

  • Football Team's Thomas Davis: To miss wild-card round

    Davis (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday night's wild-card game against the Buccaneers.

    Davis' knee issue forced him to miss a Week 16 matchup against his former team of 13 years in the Panthers, and subsequently, he sat out Washington's regular-season finale versus Philadelphia. Now confirmed unavailable for a third consecutive game, Davis will be sidelined for his 10th contest of the season. A calf injury held the veteran out of the lineup for Weeks 1 and 2, and he's been a healthy scratch on other occasions this year.
