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.

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.

Davis will take over for Cole Holcomb at the position for Week 15, as Holcomb was ruled out of the contest due to a concussion.

Davis has just five solo tackles and a pass breakup across six games this season.
Davis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
For a second straight game, Davis will serve as a healthy scratch. Kevin Pierre-Louis will continue starting at weak-side linebacker while Cole Holcomb will operate as the strong-side linebacker during Sunday's divisional tilt.

Davis (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Davis was a full participant in practice all week, so there shouldn't be much concern about his ability to make his season debut Sunday. If he indeed suits up, Davis will add veteran depth behind Shaun Dion Hamilton.

Davis (calf) did not practice Thursday, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.
Davis managed to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday, so his complete lack of activity Thursday represents a step in the wrong direction. The veteran linebacker's availability for Week 1 could come down to how much he's able to do during Friday's session.
Davis is "a bit banged up" according to defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, Ben Standing of The Athletic reports.
It's difficult to assess the severity of the injury, especially when you're looking at a 37-year-old veteran leader at linebacker like Davis, but Wednesday's practice report should paint a much clearer picture about what's going on. Regardless, Davis isn't expected to see a full snap count with his new team, but instead take on a more rotational role behind third-year pro Shaun Dion Hamilton.
The Redskins signed Davis on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
After racking up 112 tackles for the Chargers in 2019, Davis will reunite with coach Ron Rivera, with whom he played under for the prior eight seasons in Carolina. Davis joins a crowded situation at linebacker, but his versatility should allow the soon-to-be 37-year-old to slot in wherever he is needed in the coming campaign.
The Chargers released Davis on Friday, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.
Davis is coming off an impressive bounceback season with the Chargers, having notched 112 tackles, one sack and two defended passes across 16 games, but his release provides the team with $5.25 million of much-needed relief against the salary cap. Entering his age-37 season, Davis will now look to bring his years of experience to another club.
Davis finished the 2019 season with 112 tackles, one sack and two passes defended.
It was a banner year for the 36-year-old, as Davis put together his best tackle numbers since 2013 and played in all 16 games for the first time since 2016. Davis signed a two-year contract with the Chargers this past offseason, and considering the veteran linebacker indicated he'd like to come back for his 14th professional season, it'd be a surprise to see the team move away from its surprisingly productive elder statesmen.
Davis recorded five tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Raiders.
Davis has logged five or six tackles in all four of the Chargers' games since their Week 12 bye. If he can get 12 more in the final week of the year at Kansas City, he'll reach a new career high in his age-36 season.
Thomas recorded six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 39-10 loss to the Vikings.
That's now the seventh time in Davis' 13-year career that the linebacker has recorded 100 or more tackles in a season. Davis intends to play in 2020 according to ESPN.com's Eric D. Williams, although it's possible the veteran linebacker might ultimately come back on a reduced contract considering he's slated to count $5.25 million against the cap next season.
Davis posted six tackles (three solo) in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.
The performance takes Davis over 100 tackles for the seventh time in his 14 seasons. He needs just 22 more to break his career high of 123.
