    Steve Reed, of the Gaston Gazette, reports the Carolina Panthers have no plans to sign free agent WR Keyshawn Johnson (Cowboys). On Sirius NFL Radio, Johnson listed a number of teams he would like to play for, including the Panthers. Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said, "We like our receivers, and we've always said that."

    I guess he still might come back.

    Wow.

    If that's not just posturing, I am really shocked that they wouldn't have at least some interest in him.

    Come on back Key. After this whole TO Situation gets sorted out (one way or another), we'll still have a spot for you.

    Key is an aging, one-dimentional player, albeit a productive one. I doubt there is a team out there that will pay him more than the $3.5 million (including bonus) Dallas would have paid him in 2006.

    If his heart is in it only for the money then maybe he should go ahead and retire.

    I think Carolina is making a mistake if this is true.

    I think Witten has that one pretty much covered.

    I think the fact that he implied Dallas will have a shot to match any offer may scare a few teams off. They are not going to want to waste their time preparing an acceptable offer so that he can turn around and sign it with Dallas.

    I've been saying that Key and a lot of posters on this board are WAY overvaluing what he's worth.

    Not many coaches, (not named Tuna), can stand the guy.

    Good hands, tough, but old, slow, cocky, mouthy and a general pain in the backside.

    Yeah, that's a combination that teams are dying to put on their rosters. :D

    This is good news.....for us to re-sign him for the 3rd receiver in the slot.....

    TO, Glenn, Key and Crayton that would be tough

    Receivers that aren't afraid to go over the middle aren't as common as they used to be. He's tough, and he can pick up first downs to keep drives moving. I don't think he's cocky, he just doesn't care what anyone else thinks.

    I think there are a whole bunch of us who would want Key back, with open arms is putting it mildly. This team needs playmakers in the worst way.

    Ask yourself this question: Who besides Tuna wanted him when we signed him a couple of years ago?

    Now factor in the equation he's two years older and wants more $$.

    Oh yeah, "Step right up"!!
