Second year linebacker Christian Miller has informed the Panthers that he will opt out of playing this season.
“After a lot of thought and prayer, I have decided to high-risk opt out,” Miller said in a statement. “This was an emotional and extremely tough decision for me but one that I ultimately feel is the right and safest decision for me and my family. I am proud to be a Panther, and I am genuinely excited about the direction we are going under Coach Rhule and his staff. I wish the entire organization nothing but the best for 2020, and I can’t wait to rejoin them again in 2021. #KeepPounding”
Miller played in seven games last season. He’s the second player to forego this year. Undrafted rookie linebacker Jordan Mack informed the team last week of plans not to play.
