Panthers | Buckner not Ready to Retire yet

Tue, 07 Jun 2005 21:48:57 -0700

Pat Yasinskas, of the Charlotte Observer, reports Carolina Panthers DT Brentson Buckner is not planning to retire yet. "I still have something left in the tank," Buckner said this week as the Panthers went through offseason coaching sessions. "I don't want to retire and leave it in the tank. I want the tank to be empty before I get out." Even though Buckner can pretty much write his post-football ticket with potential jobs in broadcasting or coaching, he took six weeks to ponder his options. Buckner said his body feels well enough to keep playing. Buckner, who played in the 315- to 320-pound range earlier in his career, weighs about 308 now and the plan is to drop even lower before the start of the season. He's talking about playing at less than last season's 305 pounds. Buckner isn't likely to play as much as he did last year when injuries forced him to stay on the field for more than 80 percent of the defensive snaps.
