Charlotte, NC (WBTV) -
Still unsigned, Jeremy Shockey, is not a tight end in the mix for the Panthers at this point, so the competition behind starting tight end Greg Olsen is brewing.
Richie Brockel, Gary Barnidge, and Ben Hartsock are all looking to see more reps. Until someone proves they are the most worthy, Maybe Olsen's best year yet, will be 2012.
Olsen saw almost equal reps to Shockey last season, but, 88's number's were still on the rise. More yards per catch, and 5 touchdowns.
The 2nd year Panther is now feeling even more comfortable, after 3-weeks of organized team activites.
