MARCH 17: The Panthers have officially re-signed Dockery, the team confirmed today in a press release.
MARCH 12: The Panthers appear to have reached an agreement to re-sign James Dockery, according to a tweet from the defensive back himself (hat tip to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, via Twitter). “Can’t be happier to be signing back with the @Panthers,” Dockery tweeted. “Can’t wait to get back with our team and WORK!”
Dockery, 25, has seen part-time action on defense and special teams for the Panthers over the last three seasons, and was eligible for restricted free agency this winter. There were no reports suggesting the team extended Dockery an RFA tender, so I expect he’ll probably be back at the minimum salary instead. Terms of the deal aren’t yet known, however.
