Charlotte, NC – The Panthers long time tight end Wesley Walls is thinking about calling it a career after this season.
Walls, who is 36 is coming off back-to-back seasons where he under went major surgeries to twice repair a torn ACL in his left knee, is now having a problem with his ring finger on his right hand.
Walls know that he will address the issue of retirement after this season.
"That's definitely something I'm going to have to address at the end of the year and not really concern myself with it right now. That's a decision and choice I'm going to have to make. There are a lot of things that come into play and the main one is my knee, not my finger," said Walls.
The health of Walls is the biggest key as to whether or not will return to the Panthers next season.
"Physically, I want to be getting healthier as this year goes (on), instead of previous years where I ended up going to Carolinas Medical Center. I want to be getting healthier and base that decision on how I feel at the end of the year. Right now, I can't give you a clue of what I might say."
Walls is happy to have quarterback Rodney Peete's back and thinks that Peete will help the the offense be more efficient.
"We need to start scoring touchdowns when we get down there, and quit settling for field goals. Rodney has the best feel for this offense. It's been nice having him back in practice," said Walls.
It looks like this could the last season for the Panthers all time leader in touchdowns, but we will have to wait and see.
