Free Agent Receiver is Drawing Interest

Free agent WR D.J. Hackett (Seattle Seahawks) is scheduled to visit three teams this week. Hackett is viewed as the top receiver remaining on the free agent market.

Free agent WR D.J. Hackett (Seattle Seahawks) has visits two more visits coming up this week, has confirmed.

Hackett has a scheduled visit with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Thursday and with the Carolina Panthers on Friday.

Hackett is visiting the Washington Redskins on Wednesday.

Carolina's interest is curious since they signed free agent WR Muhsin Muhammad recently and selected WR Dwayne Jarrett in the second round of last year's draft. Jarrett's performance from last season was viewed as a big disappointment by the team, a league source told

Tampa Bay is still looking for a receiver with size to play opposite veteran WR Joey Galloway and they expressed interest in Hackett right after free agency started.

While Hackett's preference is to re-sign with the team that drafted him, Seattle wants him to come back to them with his best offer from another team and to give them a chance to match the offer.

Hackett was selected by Seattle in the fifth round of the 2004 draft.
