Put Thomas Davis' retirement celebrations on hold.

The longtime Carolina Panthers linebacker - who's suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season after testing positive for a banned estrogen blocker - said Thursday he's considering reversing his decision to retire at the end of the 2018 campaign.

"I'm very open to the possibility of playing next season," Davis said, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of the Carolina Observer. "You haven't been listening. I'm very open."

The 35-year-old is expected to have a reduced role in 2018, the final year of his contract. It's unclear if the Panthers would be interested in bringing back Davis for another season.
