Dear Panther Fans,

I wanted to personally write this letter to every Carolina Panther fan. Words cannot express how truly thankful my family and I are for the most wonderful 16 years of our lives.

We came to the Panthers as a young family with a 3-month-old baby. We leave with 4 children, 2 of whom are in high school. In between, you have loved and cheered and blessed us way more than we ever deserved. The only thing I could offer in return was the promise that I would try my best, every day, to make you proud.

Thank you for your encouragement when I failed. Thank you for the celebrations when we won. And most of all, thank you for letting me leave with a treasture-trove of memories that time cannot erase.

It is my hope that the greatest years in Panthers history are still to come. A franchise decorated with numerous Lombardi Trophies. Dozens of Hall-of-Fame players. And a region that swells with pride whenever they speak of their beloved Panthers.

It has been a tremendous privilege to live in Charlotte, to play for the, and to be able to share my life-long dream of playing in the NFL with all of you.

I pray that this will be a wonderful season and we will all get to watch the Panthers return to their rightful place as one of the most feared teams in the NFL.

May God bless you. Thank you again for the memories.

Blessings,

John Kasay

John was and continues to be the living definition of class. Im so very glad that his last day in the league will be as a Panther.

Yup, great news... was hoping this would happen but I wasn't sure if Kasay would allow himself to be honored in this way.

If we were 50 yards and in with the game on the line my Dad would always declare victory before the kick and he was always right.  I was too afraid to jinx us to ever do that.  Thanks John.

He didn't have much of a choice.  He was released.  He should have never been released.

 

Now, when his Jake going to sign his one day contract and rightfully retire a Panther?
