“I think just given the pieces that we’ve added, getting guys back off of injury, we can definitely compete for that No. 1 spot in the league,” Davis said. He added that he thought the Panthers’ linebacker corps could not only be the best in Carolina history but also be the best linebacking unit in the NFL in 2013.

One key quote from Davis on Beason:
“I’m very excited about Jon Beason this year,” Davis said during his speech. “He’s moving around just as fast if not faster than he was before he got injured. And I wouldn’t be standing here telling you guys that if I didn’t see it firsthand.”
Now, we have both TD and Chico confirming that Beason looks as good as ever. According to Davis, he ain't blowing sunshine up our collective asses (so to speak) regarding Beason. So perhaps a little optimism is warranted (particularly with G-man's comments at the end of minicamp).
BTW, Davis was a fill-in for Herschel Walker who was already in Charlotte when Walker learned his father had died back in Georgia (so, regards to the Walker family).
