« Panthers could face predicament with rules proposal | Main | Numbers show strength of Keyshawn's hands »

Watch here for latest on Keyshawn

If you’re near Uptown  Charlotte, keep an eye on Bank of America Stadium.

There could be a big puff of white smoke sometime this afternoon or evening. The Panthers still are visiting with free agent wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson and it’s a pretty safe bet an offer will be made.

The Panthers aren’t the type to mess around in free agency, and their recent history shows they frequently try to get prospective players to sign before they leave the building. Pursuing Johnson was not a decision the Panthers made lightly and they know his price tag (somewhere around $4 million). In other words, when the Panthers decided to put themselves in this game, they put themselves in to win it.

Johnson already turned down an offer, which averaged about $3 million a season, from the New York Giants. The Seattle Seahawks also want Johnson to visit, but the Panthers will try to make his travel plans end in Charlotte.

Keep checking Charlotte.com for the latest updates.

For the love of God..... Please sign Johnson!!! At the very least, we would be serious Superbowl contenders. The Panthers need to make a big move... and this is it.
