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.
