Are the Panthers in the Javon Walker Sweepstakes

javonwalker.jpgThe Gaston Gazette is reporting an ESPN report stating that the Carolina Panthers have contacted free agent wide receiver, Javon Walker, is false.

There was a report earlier in the day on ESPN.com that the Panthers have contacted the agent for free agent wide receiver Javon Walker. However, sources close to the situation said that is false. The Panthers did inquire about trading for Walker some time ago, but no longer seem interested in him.

Seems that a lot of teams are interested in Walker and the favorite to land him might be Dallas.  But Walker has yet to visit anywhere and is playing this very cool.  The Panthers may or may not be in the running.  Either way, the team that lands him will have to cover themselves in the even that he isn’t fully healed.

The Atlanta Falcons have signed Michael Turner.  Turner was considered one of the top michaelturner2.jpgfree agents on the market.  He was given a six-year, $34.5 million contract including $15 million in guarantees.

  • John White

    We’re only through three days so maybe we should be patient.  But the problem is that we haven’t really met with anybody yet.  That’s my concnern.  This team has got to get on the ball.

    3 days is crucial since every other team is signing signing signing away… i mean in these last 3 days our division rivals have picked up some serious players if we dont get on the band wagon soon we are looking at 3rd 4th in our division… the only thing we have done so far is cut players.
