Thomas Davis is reuniting with head coach Ron Rivera.

The veteran linebacker announced Tuesday on Instagram that he will join the Washington Redskins in 2020.

Davis became one of the NFL's most respected linebackers during his 14-season stint with the Carolina Panthers from 2005-18. Under Rivera, who coached the Panthers from 2011-19, Davis was voted to the Pro Bowl three times (2015-17) and was named a first-team All-Pro once (2015).

He was released by the Los Angeles Chargers last week after one season, in which he led the team with 112 tackles.

The soon-to-be 37-year-old has amassed 1,210 tackles, 29 sacks, 18 forced fumbles, and 13 interceptions over his career.

The 3-13 Redskins featured one of the league's worst defensive units last year, allowing 146.2 rushing yards per game. Washington also reportedly re-signed linebacker Jon Bostic on Monday.
