Wilds gets attention

Although the Panthers released Garnell Wilds soon after he had a motorscooter accident in the spring, they’re paying a lot of attention to the defensive back.

Wilds tore an anterior cruciate knee ligament. A source close to Wilds said the team paid for the surgery and a Panthers official was present in the recovery room in a Tampa hospital. The source said the Panthers have indicated to Wilds that they’ll re-sign him next year if he can get his knee in shape.

RIVALRY HEATING UP: Tampa Bay general manager Bruce Allen held a town-hall-sort of meeting with fans last week. Allen talked a lot about the virtues of Joey Galloway, who replaced Keyshawn Johnson in Tampa. Videos were played in the background.

They were pretty much a highlight reel of Galloway, but the final play was a shot of Keyshawn Johnson in a Bucs uniform dropping a pass against the Panthers. The fans cheered wildly. Allen insisted it was just coincidence that the play was included. We think not. We think it’s just the latest tweaking in a heated rivalry.

I can't wait for the I85 match-up with the Falcons. This rivalry is heated and will probably provide more excitement this year. How does the running back situation look for Carolina this year?
