There’s still no news to report about a new wide receiver joining the Panthers, but the team has brought back a pair of players from their defense.

The Panthers announced that they have re-signed cornerback James Dockery, who was not tendered a contract as a restricted free agent, and linebacker Jason Williams.

Dockery played five games for the Panthers last season as a broken thumb and shoulder injury cost him playing time during the regular season. He joined the team during the 2012 season and started a pair of games down the stretch, so he could find his way into playing time on a cornerback depth chart that’s in flux in Carolina.

Williams has been strictly a special teams player for the last couple of years, but he’s made an impact in that area. He blocked a punt in a victory over the Jets last season and has 10 tackles in kick coverage over the last two seasons. More of the same is likely in store for Williams in 2014.

    Unless ‘wheelin ‘dealin David has some form of mind control over DeShaun Jackson, then his season of free agency has been quite a farce.

    While the front half of the house is on fire, the GM is busy trimming the weeds on the backyard fence.

    Hey, at least we have all the players who won’t be dressing on Sunday locked down.

    Dave may need an alarm or a calendar. Rivera can be fired at any time and Cam comes up to get paid this year.

    After a really bad season, Rivera can be fired and Cam can be low-balled. MASTER PLAN!!!

    And I thought after 12-4, the idea was to win a couple playoff games. But what do I know? I haven’t been in a front office for 30 years.

    Gettleman has a plan. That’s the word that is being given out. Mum’s the word. His plan is to sign as many scrubs and stiffs as possible and completely do away with the wide receiver corps.
