Panthers to re-sign LB Tae Davis on 1-year deal

The Carolina Panthers continued to solidify their special teams on Friday.

As announced this morning, the Panthers have agreed to terms on a one-year pact with linebacker Tae Davis. The deal comes shortly after Carolina officially brought back both safety Sam Franklin Jr. and running back/return specialist Raheem Blackshear.

Davis, a University of Tennessee product, cracked into the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the New York Giants in 2018. Over his year and a half for Big Blue, he recorded 33 combined tackles, 2.0 sacks, five quarterback hits and a forced fumble in 18 games.

He’d then sign on with the Cleveland Browns after being waived in the middle of the 2019 campaign. Davis went on to rack up two stints for Cleveland, where he notched 12 tackles over 27 contests up until 2022.

The six-foot, 222-pounder began the 2023 season with the Atlanta Falcons, who released him in November. Davis was scooped up by the Panthers a week later and played each of his 143 snaps for them on special teams.
