Jeremy Shockey is one of the biggest name free agents still available as we head into August. Last season, the 4-time Pro-Bowler (2002, 2003, 2005, 2006) caught 37 passes for 455 yards and 4 touchdowns as a key contributor for a Panthers offense that used a lot of two-tight end sets with him and Greg Olsen. The Panthers really like the inexperienced Gary Barnidge to potentially take over Shockey’s old role.
However, they also haven’t ruled out bringing back Jeremy Shockey, even as he heads into his age 32 season, according to the Charlotte Observer. The Eagles are also another team that is interested and could bring him in for a visit. It wouldn’t be surprise me if a couple other teams were in on him. He’ll probably get signed sometime in the next week or so.
