As I stated yesterday, and is now today being reported on rotoworld:

Pro Football Weekly has spoken with a Panthers team source that says keeping free agent TE Jeff King will not be a priority.
Hardly a surprise, as even though King has proven to be a solid blocker during his five seasons in Carolina, he has provided very little in the passing game since catching 46 balls in 2007. Brittle and aging Jeremy Shockey will be the Panthers' starting Week 1 tight end.

He was Fox's guy.

I know Gantt always raved about what a great leader he is, but Rivera doesn't know that.

Still kind of a surprise.

my sources tell me:

QB Keith Null and QB Brian St. Pierre will not be retained.

My sources gave me 2 names. Oh, and Cam newton will wear #6.....

(Lets see where being the prognosticator gets me)

We need to keep Dante, very athletic TE who hasn't had his time to shine due to the Fox favoritism.

I'd like to see Zach Miller in a Panthers Uniform as well, but I think that would be one of the Raiders top priorities to keep him there. If there was a way to get him, would we be able to sign any of our big time free agents? I do like Dante and I hope Chud can make him into a pro bowl TE...fingers crossed kids hahaha

I can understand how a more athletic tight end would be preferred in this offense, but his lack of catches was probably as much a function of the scheme (or complete lack thereof) as it was him personally. He'll be a quality backup/2nd tight end for someone that runs a lot of 2 tight end sets.

I'm not sure why but I think it would still be too our benefit to re-sign Jeff.

Officially starting the Jeff King bandwagon. Hope on

My sources tell me Cam Newton has bought #7 from Jason Baker and will wear it to spite Jimmy Clausen.
