Shockey set to visit Panthers

While most of the football world remains holed up in Naptown, Jeremy Shockey will be meeting with the Carolina Panthers.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Shockey will visit the Panthers on Sunday.  The timing of the move indicates that Shockey will take a physical for the team, but we can’t imagine they’d be prepared to offer a contract yet.  Most of the team’s key decision makers will still be at the Scouting Combine.

Shockey also met with the Dolphins and reportedly is interested in playing for the Titans.  So far, it has been difficult for recently released veterans like O.J. Atogwe, Shaun Rogers, and Shockey to get acceptable contract offers.

They probably will have to wait until a new collective bargaining agreement before they get paid.

    Clausen thought Steve Smith got in his face? He’ll have it double if this happens.

    As a Panther fan I will have to say if it was my decision I’d say “keep on walkin”. We have more important things to spend money on.

    This is the year the Bengals can add all these self promoters. They can trade Carson Palmer and draft Cam Newton, resign T.O. , sign Randy Moss and Jeremy Shockey. Add all these guys with Ocho and you’ll never a dull moment then right Marvin. And you thought last year sucked.

    Just because this is painfully obvious doesn’t mean I won’t ask it. If the Panthers sign Shockey, who the hell will throw it to him? I mean, we’re okay at tight end now, aren’t we? (If nothing else, I hear Richardson’s end is so tight that he squeaks when he walks.)
