Pan­thers: Carolina won’t bring back Thomas Davis, 35, for a 15th NFL sea­son, the three-time Pro Bowl line­backer said in an emo­tional video. He over­came a torn ACL in his same knee three times to be­come the team’s all-time lead­ing tack­ler. Davis said he’s not re­tir­ing.

Chiefs: Safety Eric Berry (heel) did not prac­tice for the sec­ond straight day. How­ever, re­ceiver Sammy Watkins (foot) prac­ticed and ap­pears likely to play.

Steel­ers: The team has no in­ten­tion of re­leas­ing An­to­nio Brown, team pres­i­dent Art Rooney II told the Pitts­burgh PostGazette, but it’s also “hard to en­vi­sion” the Pro Bowl re­ceiver as a mem­ber of the team when train­ing camp starts. Brown is un­der con­tract through the 2021 sea­son.

Bears: Edge de­fender Khalil Mack will miss the Pro Bowl be­cause of an in­jury, ac­cord­ing to an an­nounce­ment by the Gi­ants that said Olivier Ver­non will re­place Mack on the NFC ros­ter. The an­nounce­ment did not spec­ify what Mack’s in­jury is, and the Bears also de­clined to spec­ify when asked for com­ment.

Buc­ca­neers: Keith Arm­strong, who was with At­lanta the past 11 sea­sons as spe­cial teams co­or­di­na­tor, was hired for the same role for new coach Bruce Ari­ans, the Tampa Bay Times re­ported.
