A couple of decent wide receivers have been linked to the Panthers today. Pro Football Talk is reporting that former Steelers WR Jerricho Cotchery will be meeting with the Panthers on Monday. The NC State product is coming off a solid season in which he hauled in 46 passes for 602 yards and a career high 10 touchdowns. If he were to sign, he would immediately become the best WR the Panthers have on their roster and his red zone prowess would be a welcome addition to the Panthers roster.
I would love the opportunity to play for the Carolina Panthers. I would love to play with Cam (Newton).
The market for Jones has been rather quiet, so there's a chance the WR could be brought in on an affordable deal. In 14 games for the Packers last season, Jones recorded 59 catches for 817 yards and 3 touchdowns. The soon-to-be 30 year old is also just one season removed from a 14 touchdown season.
While neither of these guys are solid number 1 wide receivers, acquiring either one or both of them would go a long way towards making the Panthers passing offense respectable next season.
