Carolina was an ideal landing spot for Jeremy Shockey, who signed a one-year deal worth $4 million to join the Panthers after being cut by the Saints in the offseason. It reunited him with the coach who played a critical role in his development at the University of Miami, ex-Hurricanes assistant and current Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski. It also paired him with another former Hurricanes tight end, Greg Olsen. Olsen, who is five years younger than Shockey, signed a long-term extension with the Panthers after being traded from the Bears in the offseason and clearly has established himself as the team's top pass-catching tight end, but Shockey has embraced his role, played it well and stayed relatively healthy. Shockey, 31, has made it clear that he would like to sign an extension to stay with the Panthers. Carolina would likely consider bringing him back on another short-term deal, but it's expected there won't be serious contract talks until the offseason.
