Legendary linebacker LUUUUUUUUUUKE Kuechly will officially be returning to the Carolina Panthers organization. Unfortunately, for those of us who like to watch the Panthers win games, Kuechly will not be returning to the field.
According to a press release from the Panthers, Kuechly will be returning to the organization to join this year’s radio broadcast, along with either Jordan Gross or Jake Delhomme. He’ll be in the booth for six home games (Week 1 against the Browns, Week 4 against the Cardinals, Week 5 against the 49ers, Week 7 against the Buccaneers, Week 12 against the Broncos, and Week 15 against the Steelers), and the road trip to his hometown of Cincinnati (Week 9).
“I just love the Panthers; I love being around it,” Kuechly noted. “I love the people. I think I want to be attached to the team, and the game, and the organization somehow. You still get the atmosphere, and all the good memories I have here in Carolina.”
