    I hope he becomes a linebacker coach or defensive coordinator because he’s a beast and he’s got great mental capacity

    Def be missed. I wasn’t a Panthers fan but he was one of those guys you loved to watch. Patrick Willis was another linebacker that I loved watching. Both ferocious linebackers with a level of physicality and intelligence rarely seen.

    Luke is to carolina football what ray lewis and ed reed were to Baltimore football. What cal jr. Was to the orioles. Drew brees to the saints, etc. You have your flashy stars and then you have the guys you feel like are family...

    His girlfriend is a physicians assistant. I suspect she talked him into retiring before his multiple head injuries made a vegetable out of him.

    Look up Luke Kuechly, Jamon Hughes..
    I was the first linebacker ever to finish top 3 in Nation in tackles and didnt get drafted. Luke and I battled for number one in the Nation in tackles. He was a beast...

    Dude this guy is so good. He had more pro bowls than Randy Moss And Terrell Owens. He is a beast. In my opinion he’s one of the best linebackers I’ve ever seen

    My best memory is when he said he had no idea where the ball was going against the Niners. We are talking about the best in the game at reading offenses and he was dumbfounded. I wish him well on his next journey.

    One thing you could have done in this video to make it better is show quotes from offensive players where they say Luke KNEW what play they would run based on his ability to read offensives. Great athlete, but his ability to read offensives was unparalleled.

    No particular standout memory. But I remember everytime I watched him play I was amazed at how he was always near the ball. Sideline to sideline had an insane motor and never took a play off. Rare combo of talent , effort and knowledge. Hes a once in a generation type player . Should be a hall of famer.

    I'm not happy about not watching him kill my Buccaneers but very happy that he is making a smart decision for the rest of his life! To me he's a Champion and should be a first ballot Hall of Famer! Class act that he never had to act he was just being Luke!

    Luke is one of the nicest dudes off the field. I used to bump into him all the time in a sporting goods store in South Carolina. Luke always talked to everyone as an equal, and gave everyone respect. I'm personally happy for him that he had such an amazing career, and was able to walk away with his head still clear before the TBIs started really racking up. Congratulations Luke, and thank you for everything you brought to the Carolinas. Also, I really hope Luke can stick around Charlotte and help as a coach. His knowledge is priceless.

    There have been so many great linebackers in recent years that seem to call it quits early. Jon Beason, David Harris, Patrick Willis, Paup Poluzne, couple I think for Steelers if I remember correctly, and it goes on.
