Just like last season, No. 18 lined up
next to Steve Smith in the Carolina Panthers' three-receiver set at
Sunday's minicamp practice.
Only this No. 18 wasn't the underachieving speedster with
suspect hands. The Panthers have traded out Drew Carter for D.J.
Keary Colbert wasn't around on the sun-splashed morning either.
Veteran Muhsin Muhammad, another offseason pickup, was split wide
right on the same play.
Hackett and Muhammad are part of Carolina's offseason upgrade at
receiver, designed to eliminate the constant double teams the
three-time Pro Bowl selection Smith faced last season.
