NFL | Proehl hoping for one final call

Ed Hardin, of the News-Record, reports free agent WR Ricky Proehl (Panthers) doesn't want his NFL football career to end, but he knows it's going to end, and possibly soon. Proehl will wait by the phone at his home in Greensboro this week for a job offer, and it won't be from the Carolina Panthers and it won't be as an NFL wide receiver. "I might just walk away," he said Monday, July 3. After three years with the Panthers, Proehl was hopeful for a fourth. "It's frustrating," Proehl said. "I was ready to play. I was going to play." He thought the Panthers wanted him. Proehl says he was told as much. If somebody gets hurt or if WR Keyshawn Johnson turns out to be a bad fit, the Panthers might call him. Proehl said he might not be waiting by then. He hopes to be working in television or radio, possibly working for an NFL team. It's what he planned to do all along once his playing career ended. Proehl said he will probably know something in the coming week. Proehl did say he has been contacted by several NFL teams.
