Panthers reportedly part ways with K Gano

The Carolina Panthers released Pro Bowl kicker Graham Gano on Thursday, according to the player’s wife.

“This is not the easiest thing to post but we know that all good things eventually have to come to an end,” Brittany Gano posted on Instagram. “… This is just the beginning to a new amazing adventure.”

Gano, 33, made the Pro Bowl in 2017 but missed the final four games in 2018 and sat out the entire 2019 season with an injured left knee.

Entering the third year of a four-year, $17 million contract, he was due $2.8 million this season. The Panthers will save that money against the cap while absorbing $1.5 million in dead money in 2020 and 2021.

In 10 seasons with Washington (2009-11) and Carolina (2012-18), Gano has made 224 of 273 field-goal attempts (82.1 percent) and 306 of 321 PATs (95.3 percent) in 134 career games.

Gano ranks second in Panthers history in scoring with 742 points, trailing fellow kicker John Kasay (1,482).

On Oct. 7, 2018, he booted a career-long 63-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Panthers to a 33-31 victory against the visiting New York Giants.
