Davis was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in 2005 and had been there ever since.
The linebacker has made over 1,100 total tackles in his carer. He is a three-time pro bowler, former first team all-pro member, and was named the Walter Payton Man of the year in 2014.
With the Chargers, Davis will play middle linebacker next to Melvin Ingram. He brings a veteran presence to a young Chargers defense who finished ninth in total defense in 2018.
Davis hopes to have one more chance to win his first super bowl with a Chargers team set to make a lot of noise next season.
