Jeremy Shockey Still In Play For Panthers

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- There still is a chance free-agent tight end Jeremy Shockey could return to the Carolina Panthers.

A team official said the Panthers remain in contact with Shockey's agent and the tight end has told the team he wants to play another season. No deal is imminent but the two sides are keeping an open dialogue.

For the record, “the snitch’’ on this was not Warren Sapp.

Shockey, 31, joined the Panthers last season. Although Shockey produced a career-low 37 catches, the Panthers believe he's a perfect complement to Greg Olsen, the team’s top pass-catching tight end. There were previous reports that Shockey had told the New York Giants he was interested in playing for them. That’s where Shockey began his career before being traded to the New Orleans Saints in 2008. There have no indications the Giants have any interest in bringing Shockey back.

Good to hear. Maybe we get Gross and/or CJ to restructure and sign Shock, Applewhite and Garay.

Please come back to us Shocky. Gary Barnidge hasn't proven a damn thing. Let's not give him his first chance as a 2nd string. Tight ends are too valuable to this offense to take such a risk. If Cam Newton is comfortable with tight ends than we need tight ends. We need to make sure Cam can return with the same confidence he ended last season with.

I hate to say it, but we need shockey in this offense. Barnidge hasn't done anything and Hartstock and Brockel aren't exactly better. Drafting a TE would not solve the problem immediately maybe in the long run. Unfortunately, he won't be getting paid the big bucks if he wants to play. That's the thing, Unless we do a Tolbert type of deal.

I'd welcome him back with open arms. Only on a minimum vet salary however.

Does anyone else feel that if we do lock up Shockey it should be for 2-3 years? Just to give us time to find a TE that Chudz can develop?

Anyone doubting the importance of tight ends to this offense should watch from @3:15 to the end.

You really wanna blindly throw Barnidge in there and just see what happens?
