Thomas Davis plans to play at least one more season, but it won't be with the Carolina Panthers.

Davis, 35, announced via social media that the Panthers informed him they were going in "a different direction at the linebacker position" and would not be re-signing him.

"Carolina is going to always be home for me and my family, but I'm not retiring,'' said Davis, selected by Carolina out of Georgia with the 14th pick of the 2005 draft. "I feel like I have way too much football left in me to walk away from the game right now, so I want to keep playing. I'm going to keep playing.

"Hopefully, someone is going to give me that opportunity."
