Ron Rivera has a plan for the Carolina Panthers defense and that plan is to move Luke Kuechly from the position he played during his college career.
Kuechly was only 13 tackles short of the NCAA record for a career with 532 and led the nation with 191 tackles during the 2011 season. His team, Boston College, finished a horrid 4-8 but he did break the single season tackles-per-game record with 15.9 (previously held by Rick Sherrod with a 15.6 average over a 10-game season). He was also the recipient the 2011 Butkus Award, Lombardi Award and Bronko Nagurski Trophy.
The move is due to Jon Beason's return who is trying to make it back from surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon.
