The Moose Is Loose!


 UPDATE:  Muhsin Muhammad was signed today by the Panthers according to the Charlotte Observer.

Muhammad’s return bolsters the Panthers’ receiving corps. He rejoins Steve Smith and will compete for a starting position, while also serving as a mentor to Dwayne Jarrett, a 2007 second-round draft pick.

We’ve been saying for days that the Carolina Panthers want to bring back Muhsin Muhammad.  Now his agent, Joel Segal, is saying that a deal is “close” in a report published today in the Gaston Gazette.

“Moose is very close to a deal with Carolina,” Segal said Tuesday. “I feel like we are making good progress. We’re still talking and there are a few things still to work out.”

Panthers general manager Marty Hurney, who rarely discusses contract negotiations, also seemed unusually optimistic that a deal could get done soon.

“We’re talking,” Hurney said Tuesday afternoon from Indianapolis. “Obviously we are interested in bringing Moose back and I think he’s interested in returning. Hopefully we can get it wrapped up in the next day or two.”

    Moose could be a very good addition especially adding blocking downfield in the running game.  As for Carr…well…happy trails to you!

    The running backs should be happy that they will have better downfield blocking too.  Man, I sound like a broken record!
