Long-Time Panthers WR Muhsin Muhammad Announces Retirement

14-year veteran wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad has announced his retirement from pro football. Muhammad made the move official at a Thursday afternoon press conference

The final numbers for Muhammad show how much of an impact he had on the Panthers organization. He'll end his career as the franchise leader in receptions (696) and receiving yards (9,255). He's tied for the franchise lead in receiving touchdowns (50) and games started (141). He's second in 100-yard games (27) and total touchdowns (50). He's also second in total games played (155).

The Panthers leadership had pleasant words for the man who spent 11 years in a Carolina uniform.

"Coaching Muhsin has been a pleasure," said head coach John Fox. "He is the ultimate competitor, and you always knew he would give you everything he had. We shared some great moments, and his contributions were invaluable to the success we enjoyed. His receiving numbers reflect what kind of receiver he was, but he was also one of the best blocking wide outs to ever play in the NFL."

"The first word that come comes to mind when you think about Muhsin is toughness," said general manager Marty Hurney. "His competitiveness was contagious in our locker room. He was a dependable playmaker and a leader who brought very much to our team."
