Panthers Sign WR DJ Hackett

It looks like the Panthers won the bidding war for free agent WR DJ Hackett.

Free agent wideout D.J. Hackett agreed to two-year, $3.5 million deal with Carolina on Monday as the Panthers continued to upgrade their receiving corps.

The former Seahawk chose Carolina over Seattle, Washington and Tampa Bay, according to his agent, Kevin Robinson.

This a big signing for the Panthers. Unlike the Toefield signing this will reduce the pressure for the Panthers to draft another WR early in the upcoming draft. We have to pray  this guy stays healthy. If you recall he was a huge factor in the Seahawks play-off game win against the Redskins this past post-season. He has great hands and can get open on key third downs. Again, a big signing that really shores up our receiving corps.
