Panthers | Team to Retire Mills' No. 51
Panthers.com reports the Carolina Panthers will retire jersey No. 51 in memory of deceased LB Sam Mills. The event will take place at halftime when Carolina hosts the Washington Redskins on August 13. "Sam will always have a special place in the history of the Panthers," said team president Mark Richardson, who provided one of the eulogies at Mills' memorial service. "His contributions as a player and coach are unique in our team's short history, but I expect they will be just as meaningful and significant many years in the future. He was an extraordinary man who is the model for all those who follow him with the Panthers."
