Placekicker John Kasay is the longest-tenured Carolina Panthers player, having played in 221 games from 1995 to 2010 with the team.

The Carolina Panthers are a professional American football club based in Charlotte, North Carolina. They play the southern division of the National Football Conference (NFC), one of the two conferences in the National Football League (NFL). On October 26, 1993, NFL owners unanimously selected Carolina as the 29th NFL franchise and the first expansion team since 1976. Carolina Panthers Owner/Founder Jerry Richardson, became just the second former player to own an NFL team along with George Halas of the Chicago Bears. The Panthers lost Super Bowl 50 to Denver Broncos after a 15-1 season.

Kicker John Kasay is the longest-tenured player, having participated in 221 games over his 15 seasons with the team. Kasay is one of five players who have played in at least 150 games with the team, and holds team records for most career field goals made and points scored.[1][2] Offensive tackle Jordan Gross holds the team record for most starts (151); wide receiver Steve Smith ranks second in team starts (161) and games played (182), and holds numerous team records for receiving and kick/punt returns.[3][4] Sam Mills, who started 48 games with the team from 1995 to 1997, is the only player in the team's Hall of Honor[5] and is also the only player to have had his number (#51) retired by the team.[6] No longtime Panther has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame; the only Hall of Fame member to have played for the team is Reggie White, who spent the 2000 season with the team.[7]
