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.
