Panthers Release K John Kasay, the Last Original Panther

We knew this day would come some day, we just didn't think it would be now. The Panthers have cut ties with K John Kasay, the last player remaining from the original 1995 Panthers team:

"John has been solid and dependable and has been a core part of the community, and it's an extremely difficult decision," Hurney said. "But we just thought that with the combination of increased emphasis on kickoffs and the ability to more than likely have two kickers on the roster, a kicker and a punter, we felt like that was the best move to make."

This move was expected after the Panthers signed K Olindo Mare. Signing Mare represented a chance to save a roster spot after the kick off line was moved up 5 yards. Mare has some big shoes to fill and will be in the unfortunate situation of getting booed for any and every FG miss he makes. I'm sure we'll have more on Kasay in the next few days.
