On Thursday, mixed signals came from Panthers coach Ron Rivera and G.M. Marty Hurney on the question of whether tight end Jeremy Shockey will be retiring.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Shockey isn’t calling it quits.  The source specifically said Shockey will be playing next year, and that there’s “no chance” he’ll retire.

Shockey, a 10-year veteran, has played for the Giants, Saints, and Panthers.  He’ll be a free agent on March 13.
