Which former members of the Carolina Panthers surprisingly did not receive a Pro Bowl selection despite their outstanding careers?
The Carolina Panthers have been fortunate enough to have some tremendous players throughout their 25-year history. Although this has not quite been enough to bring an elusive Super Bowl to the organization. It has resulted in plenty of memorable moments for fans to savor.
Achieving individual notoriety is something that every player aims for when they enter the NFL. Those who have turned out for the Carolina Panthers over the years boast a wealth of accolades as a result of their outstanding performances on the field. But whether this current group can follow in their footsteps remains to be seen.
Although the Pro Bowl’s significance has dwindled in prestige over time. It still represents something that every player who earns this distinction can look back on with an enormous sense of pride when they eventually hang up their cleats.
The likes of Trai Turner and Luke Kuechly are the most recent to become perennial Pro Bowl selections as part of the Panthers. Both are no longer with the organization after the offensive lineman was traded to the Los Angeles Chargers in exchange for Russell Okung and the legendary linebacker called it a day after eight glittering seasons with the franchise.
Some standout performers in Carolina can feel rightfully aggrieved that they never received this honor throughout their careers. Here are four Panthers players who surprisingly never earned a Pro Bowl appearance.
