CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Longtime Panthers radio analyst Eugene Robinson says the team will not renew him for the 2019 season.

Robinson, who spent 17 seasons in the booth for Panthers games, told NBC Charlotte he was not upset about the decision.

“I’m not mad at all,” said Robinson. “I got to play this game and then broadcast for 17 years. I’ve been blessed.”

Robinson, who co-hosts Charlotte Today on WCNC, says the team offered to keep him on in another role, perhaps pre and postgame broadcasts.

“I totally get it,” he said. “I totally understand.”
