Hanging Up the Cleats: Muhsin Muhammad Announces His Retirement

HOUSTON, TX - FEBRUARY 1: Receiver Muhsin Muhammad #87 of the Carolina Panthers catches an 85 yard touchdown pass in front of defensive back Eugene Wilson #26 of the New England Patriots in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XXXVIII at Reliant Stadium on February 1, 2004 in Houston, Texas.

Undoubtedly, most folks have already learned the news that today, Panthers’ 14-year veteran wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad officially hung up his cleats and called it a career.

Drafted by the Panthers in 1996 out of Michigan State, Muhammad spent all but three years of his career with the Carolina Panthers.

No longer will we hear the raucous crowd cry of  “Mooooooose!”

Muhammad played a solid career with the Carolina Panthers. He also participated in Carolina’s lone Super Bowl appearance, Super Bowl XXXVIII against the New England Patriots.

The saddest part — here is yet another fine, deserving NFL athlete who never played for a Super Bowl-winning team. He did at least get to play in two, with two different teams.

Running through the stats, Muhammad amassed 860 catches for 11,438 yards and 72 touchdowns. He also contributed 11 carries for 64 yards-rushing.

I remember like it was yesterday, when Moose graced the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Thank you for everything you contributed during your time in the NFL and with the Carolina Panthers.

    He will be missed. I hope he will continue his excellent off field work here in Charlotte. And I hope the young guys took note of what it takes to be a productive receiver in the NFL over the long haul.

    Oh and I don’t care what Yasinkas says on his blog Moose sure seems like one of the good guys to me. Especially when you hear charity after charity coming forward to say how available Moose made himself to them and how much he helped them. Sure doesn’t sound self-centered.

    Anyway best of luck in whatever you do Moose and thanks for the memories.

    thanks for all the memories moose. you’ll be missed on the field and in this household. hope your broadcasting career soars just like so many of the passes you’ve brung in over your career. wish you’d never left to join the bears but that’s a seperate issue. i’ll never forget the bomb from jake that hit you in mid stride and watching you do the rest for what i hope remains the longest reception from scrimmage in superbowl history. you’re a true champion in our hearts and eyes. good luck and thanks again.
