DJ Hackett visits the team Friday, in a bit of a surprise move. The Panthers had stated a line of having DWI Jarrett...err, Dwayne Jarrett...starting; then Muhsin Muhammad was signed. Now, they're after Hackett, a part time starter for the Seahawks and extraordinary slot player in a spread offense.
It's hard to say who would start of the two - chances are greater, of course, that both get individual time next to Steve Smith, but the implied #2 receiver would be a more hazy situation. Muhammad starts every game up to this point; Hackett has always been potential, without results.
Uncorobborated rumors have former Bucs center John Wade visiting the Panthers soon.
Drew Carter signed an undisclosed contract with the Raiders; David Carr signed a $1 mil, 1 year deal to be a backup with the Giants.
Personally, I wouldn't be at all unhappy with Jared Lorenzen as our primary backup, with Matt Moore fighting it out with him.
