Tight end Jeremy Shockey announced via Twitter that he will be signing with the Panthers, giving Carolina an interesting piece to an offense that was awful last season and will have new look with new coach Ron Rivera.
Shockey said, “Looks like I’m signing with Carolina. Time for the Next chapter. This is a great opportunity for me.” Shockey said he would choose between the Carolina Panthers and Dolphins. He had taken a physical with Miami, but decided against inking with the Fins in favor of Carolina.
