HACKETT LANDS IN CAROLINA

The Carolina Panthers continue to load up on pass catchers who might benefit from all the attention that Steve Smith receives.
After bringing back Muhsin Muhammad, the team has now added D.J. Hackett, formerly of the Seattle Seahawks.
Per Adam Schefter of NFL Network and Adam Caplan of Scout.com, Hackett will sign a two-year, $3.5 million deal with the Panthers.
Hackett has shown flashes of ability during his NFL career, but that potential wasn’t enough to get a team to open its wallet wider than $1.75 million per year.
Other teams interested in Hackett were the Seahawks, the Redskins, and the Buccaneers.
The Panthers also have Dwayne Jarrett, a second-round pick in 2007, and Travis Taylor, a well-traveled first-round pick of the Ravens in 2000.
