10:12 AM ET 05.07 | Long-time Carolina Panthers kicker John Kasay is expected to sign a one-day contract with the team and officially retire as a member of the Panthers on Tuesday, according to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. Kasay will retire as the team's all-time leader in scoring by a wide margin. Kasay, 43, was a fourth-round selection in the 1991 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks and played four seasons with the team before leaving to join the Carolina Panthers in 1995, the team's first season in the NFL. He stayed with the team for 16 years, playing in 15 seasons (he missed the 2000 season due to a broken kneecap), before he was finally released by the team in 2011.

What did he do to have someone break his kneecap? Knock up an Italian girl and not marry her?

If he played in Philly I'd say he probably just missed an extra point.

He was late on a payment to Guido.

Not true.

According to the Mob rulebook, knee caps may only be broken after the 3rd missed payment. The first missed payment results in an intimating visit by Guido's muscle. The second, body punches that don't show. The 3rd, broken leg/knee cap. If you miss the 4th payment they break the other leg. The 5th missed payment results in cement oveshoes and a visit with the fishes.

Glad to see Kasay coming home to retire. He was a class act while here in Carolina, hated to see him let go. Wishing him well in his retirement.

It's only until some other team realizes that the kicker they've got isn't getting the job done, or misses 3 payments.
