Carolina Panther fans are all feeling heart-ache with the sad news that Luke Kuechly has made the decision to retire from the NFL Kuechly was a first-round pick in 2012 and is one of the best (if not THE BEST) linebackers in the NFL. Kuechly said, ""I think now is the right chance for me to move on," Kuechly said. "It makes me sad because I love playing this game, I've played it since I was a kid. It's my favorite thing in the world to do. The memories I have from this place and this organization and being on the field with these guys – they'll never go away."
"In my heart I know it's the right thing to do… There's only one way to play this game since I was a little kid – play fast, play physical and play strong. And at this point I don't know if I am able to do that anymore."
Now excuse me while I go cry.... hate, hate, haaaaate this news. #iHeartKuechly
