Hopefully he gets on the field and can stay healthy on the field, with Davis Beason and Anderson is already a great LB core and adding Luke makes it even better...... Cant wait for the 2012 campaign....

I absolutely loved these videos. It was a very candid interview and it shows how much TD loves his family and the game of football. I hope he does come back and proves all of us that have doubted him wrong.

That was great. It reminds me that this guy just took a massive pay cut to stay on our roster. He could have played hardball, the Panthers put themselves in a very bad position with his contract but he reworked it for us and now he has a chance.

Fine, I'll be the only one to say just stop. Give Davis a coaching job or put him in the front office or enter acting with marking, don't let that man go out the a ruin his knee till it isn't fixable again. How many times can it pop before the tendens just had enough. That knee isn't going to be worth poo when he gets oldder in a couple yrs. Most people with bad knee complain when its cold or it rains, Davis knee will freeze up if you drop a glass of water on it

Fu*king class act. You just don't find class like this on other NFC South teams.

I don't think he will be in THAT bad shape after his career is over. He has torn the ligament three times. They keep fixing it up and letting it heal. How could that be worse than a guy that pops it off completely the first time and continues to play for 8 years? The guy hasn't taken many licks in the last 3-4 years. I would be much more worried about the guys getting their heads beat in.

How many times can it pop before the tendens just had enough.

It's not a tendon, it's a ligament, and it's not the same ligament each time. When you have a complete ACL tear, they remove that ACL, then take something from somewhere else in your body (middle third of your patella tendon, part of your hamstring, etc.) or a tendon from someone else (not as reliable) and put it in place of your ACL. Amazingly, your body can take something like a tendon, recognize that it's not supposed to be there, break it down, and turn it into a ligament. Then, what used to be a tendon or muscle can turn into a new ACL.
