John Kasay to get proper send-off

John Kasay's career will end exactly the way it should, on a rather understated note and with a lot of dignity.

The Carolina Panthers just sent an email to the media saying a “retirement reception’’ will be held at Bank of America Stadium on Tuesday afternoon. I’m a little surprised Kasay is allowing even that much fanfare.

I covered Kasay for much of his tenure in Carolina and the kicker didn’t like a lot of attention. Even though he has a journalism degree from the University of Georgia, Kasay didn’t spend a lot of time talking to the media. When he did speak, he was polite and insightful, but those opportunities were rare.

I always got the feeling that Kasay was much more focused on doing his job (and doing it very well), and I respected him immensely for that. That approach worked quite well for Kasay during an NFL career that began with Seattle in 1991.

Kasay joined the expansion Panthers in 1995 and stayed through the 2010 season. He kicked for New Orleans in 2011 and spent last season out of the NFL after being released by the Saints in training camp.

Kasay ends his career with 1,970 points. I’m glad Kasay is at least letting the Panthers hold this reception. Kasay deserves a proper send-off from the Panthers.
