GREENSBORO, NC -- The Panthers just got a little deeper at WR.
Wide receiver Ricky Proehl announced on tonight's WXII-12 newscast that he would return for his 16th season, reports Spencer Cagle of DeaconSports.com.
This news comes as a sigh of relief to Panthers fans, who saw the Panthers release All-Pro receiver Muhsin Muhammad earlier in the preseason.
In his two seasons with Carolina, Proehl has amassed 61 receptions for 886 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Proehl, who turned 37 yesterday, will be looked upon to fill the leadership role left vacant by Muhammad.
Proehl attended Wake Forest University from 1986 through the 1989 season and still maintains a home in Greensboro. His 2,949 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns still stand as Wake Forest all-time records.
