"That's something that we will address and have conversations about down the road," Hurney said of Davis' contract status. "Thomas is a leader and is a special talent and does everything you ask."

If the Panthers decide not to give Davis the $8 million bonus and he doesn't agree to restructure his current deal he'd become a free agent and would be free to sign with any other team.

That's not what Davis wants.

His goal is to continue to play for the Panthers -- even at a reduced rate.

"My heart is here," Davis said. "There ain't nowhere else I'd rather play. It's the love I have for these guys in the locker room. These are my brothers and I want to go out and compete and fight with them. I feel like we're going to do great things around here and I want to be a part of that.

as long as he agrees to restructure I see no harm in keeping him around

we can't go into 2012 expecting him to be healthy though. backfired this time.

I think 2012 corps will be.

Beason/Anderson/Davis/Thomas Williams/Omar Gaither/Jason Philips/4th or later draft pick.

can't we RFA tag Connor? I can't see them letting him walk in case we need to move Beason to WLB and keep Connor at MLB.

I can't explain the uncontrolled rage I will expel if we draft ANOTHER fuging linebacker with a top 15 pick.

OLB is probably our single biggest need, I don't are if we spend a top 5 pick on filling that hole.

IDK if I would Rage but if there is a big speedy LB available at where we pick I say we go for it. We really need some bigger LBs if were are going play both 4-3 and 3-4.
