Panthers | J. Mitchell may retire

Sun, 09 Apr 2006 08:52:24 -0700

Darin Gantt, of the Rock Hill Herald, reports free agent OL Jeff Mitchell (Panthers) may decide to retire from the NFL. While there's been no official announcement, those close to Mitchell suggest he has little interest in coming back for a one-year, minimum-wage deal. He's had a few teams call with offers of work, but none so far that moved him. He'll need a more substantial offer from some team to entice him to sign.

NFL | Former TE Walls, Three Others Now Identified With Steroids

Fri, 12 Aug 2005 22:22:33 -0700

Charles Chandler, of the Charlotte Observer, reports former Carolina Panthers Pro Bowl TE Wesley Walls was a patient of the South Carolina doctor at the center of a federal steroids investigation, according to an HBO report Friday Aug. 12. The "Costas Now" program did not say whether Walls obtained NFL-banned steroids or related substances from Dr. James Shortt. However, Shortt told interviewer Armen Keteyian that he provided anabolic steroids to about half of the one-to-two dozen NFL players he treated and that he injected human growth hormone (HGH) into most of them. Steroids and HGH are not allowed by the NFL or major pro sports. HGH is difficult to detect because scientists have yet to develop a reliable urine or blood test. Walls, who is retired, did not return telephone messages left Friday by the Observer and declined comment to HBO. He becomes the seventh Panther to be identified as a patient of Shortt. HBO also named ex-Panthers DE John Milem and two players from other teams - ex- New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins OG Dave Fiore and former Atlanta Falcons DE Henry Taylor - as patients of Shortt. Milem, the only player interviewed on the program, said he received HGH and supplements from Shortt. Taylor was quoted as saying he got HGH from Shortt but, in retrospect, said he exhibited poor judgment. Fiore's agent, Arthur Weiss, was quoted as saying Fiore saw Shortt twice to receive medical treatment for joint injuries, but that he never received a banned substance. CBS reported in March that C Jeff Mitchell, P Todd Sauerbrun and OT Todd Steussie filled prescriptions written by Shortt for NFL-banned steroids. Only Mitchell remains with the Panthers. Sauerbrun was traded to the Denver Broncos in May. Steussie plays for Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Panthers | Mitchell Anchors the O-Line

Thu, 04 Aug 2005 22:54:35 -0700

Brett Borden, of Panthers.com, reports Carolina Panthers C Jeff Mitchell has become the team's veteran leader of the offensive line. Mitchell is entering his ninth NFL season and fifth with Carolina. "It's kind of strange being called the old guy," Mitchell said. "I guess nine years in the league is a long time, though. I've been fortunate to be in the same place for the last five years, which is nice. The biggest advantage to that, especially since I'm the center, is that I've got a feel for what the coaches want."
