According to the Philadelphia Daily News, there remains "mutual" interest between the Eagles and free agent Jeremy Shockey.
"Nothing is close to happening now," however, cautions the Daily News. The Eagles still haven't brought Shockey in for a physical, perhaps because they want to give youngsters Brett Brackett and Chase Ford a chance early in camp. Thu, Jul 26, 2012 07:13:00 PM

The Eagles still have not scheduled a meeting with free agent TE Jeremy Shockey.

The Eagles missed out on Visanthe Shiancoe, who chose to sign with the Patriots. But for now, they appear content to roll with Clay Harbor and Brett Brackett behind starter Brent Celek. We suspect that will change as camp moves along.

The Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers "haven't ruled out" re-signing free agent Jeremy Shockey.

Per beat writer Joseph Person, the Panthers want to see how Gary Barnidge looks in camp before making a final decision on Shockey. Barnidge missed all of 2011 with a broken ankle. The AP's Steve Reed reported in March the Panthers were "really high" on Barnidge's potential as a downfield threat before his injury. It probably doesn't hurt that he's making just $615,000.

The Eagles have "put on hold" plans to host free agent TE Jeremy Shockey for a physical.

It appears Philadelphia may be on the verge of signing fellow free agent Visanthe Shiancoe. After making zero visits between now and March, Shockey's market should pick up following the start of training camps.

The Eagles will have in free agent Jeremy Shockey for a physical.

The Eagles are kicking the tires on 32-year-old TEs Shockey and Visanthe Shiancoe, with the latter set to visit club headquarters on Tuesday. Both players can still catch and block, and would be an upgrade on incumbent No. 2 Clay Harbor.

CSN Philadelphia's Reuben Frank reports the Eagles plan on giving free agent TE Jeremy Shockey a physical "at some point."

Frank reports that, as of now, Shockey isn't scheduled to work out for the Eagles. Shockey hasn't made so much as a visit since the beginning of free agency, but that could be due more to his monetary demands than a perceived erosion of skill, even though he is clearly not the player he once was. Shockey posted a 37/455/4 line in 15 games for the Panthers last season.

The player rep for free agent TE Jeremy Shockey says the "door's still open (with the Panthers)," but that it's "more likely" Shockey signs elsewhere.

The sides have kept an "open dialogue," but it doesn't sound like the Panthers are willing to meet Shockey's monetary demands after he caught a career-low 37 passes in 2011. He hasn't taken any visits since the beginning of free agency.

The Panthers and free agent TE Jeremy Shockey are keeping an "open dialogue" regarding a potential re-signing.

Shockey played 509 snaps as the No. 2 tight end in Carolina last season, so this is far from insignificant. Current backup TE Gary Barnidge missed the entire 2011 season due to a broken ankle, so it's no surprise that they'd like some security at the position. Shockey was hoping for a bigger role with a new team this year, but he obviously hasn't seen the market he was hoping. It looks like he may have to settle for a return to Carolina.

Profootballtalk.com reports free agent TE Jeremy Shockey is "hell bent" on taking action against NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp for saying he was the "snitch" in the Saints' bounty case.

He's mulling legal action. Shockey hasn't received any public interest since the beginning of free agency, and can now point to Sapp's alleged defamation as one of the reasons he can't get work. Both PFT and CBS' Mike Freeman have reported Shockey was not the Saints' whistleblower. Being the "snitch" certainly wouldn't help Shockey's chances of finding employment, but the reality is he'd already be signed if teams were enthused about his 2012 prospects.

Free agent TE Jeremy Shockey would like to return to the Giants, according to the Daily News.

Remember that Shockey complained about his blocking role, got into a shouting match with GM Jerry Reese and then demanded a trade out of New York four years ago. Although the Giants need some more tight end depth with Jake Ballard (knee) and Travis Beckum (knee) sidelined, it's hard to see a reunion here. Shockey can no longer separate at age 31 and the Giants signed talented Martellus Bennett on Wednesday.

The Panthers are not expected to offer free agent Jeremy Shockey the $4 million he made in 2011.

Shockey is one of the "jewels" of an extremely thin tight end market, but has little leverage with the Panthers with Greg Olsen already set to make $5.5 million between bonuses and salary next season. GM Marty Hurney has said he expects Shockey back with the Panthers in 2012.

Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reports there is "no chance" free agent Jeremy Shockey retires this offseason.

Profootballtalk heard the exact same phrase from their own source. Coach Ron Rivera got the impression that Shockey was at least contemplating retirement, likely because veterans often express that sentiment immediately after a long season. Expect the 31-year-old to re-sign with the Panthers, where his former Miami U position coach Rob Chudzinski runs the offense.

Although free agent Jeremy Shockey has considered retirement, GM Marty Hurney expects him back with the Panthers in 2012.

"Every indication we've received is that Jeremy is motivated to play football this season," Hurney said. "That's what we're operating under." Shockey will likely have to settle for another one-year contract.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera revealed at the Combine Thursday that free agent Jeremy Shockey spoke of retirement after the season.

It's common for players over 30 to consider calling it quits just after the end of regular seasons, but Shockey has been injury prone in recent years and his body is beginning to break down. "With him, you never know," Rivera said. Shockey has not played a full 16-game season in his 11-year career. In 2011, the 31-year-old caught 37 passes for 455 yards and four touchdowns.

The Charlotte Observer expects re-signing Jeremy Shockey to be a priority for the Panthers this offseason.

Shockey is seeking a deal close to the $4 million he made last season, which could be cost prohibitive for a team with a 2012 cap projection in the range of $121 million. If he's unwilling to take a pay cut, the Panthers would likely turn to fourth-year pro Gary Barnidge as a complement to Greg Olsen. Barnidge missed all of the 2011 season with a broken ankle.
