Seattle placekicker John Kasay will visit with the Carolina Panthers on Monday as the team begins courting unrestricted free agents.
Kasay, known as one of the league’s strongest and most accurate kickers, is scheduled to arrive in Charlotte tonight.
Kasay’s agent, Gary Reale, said there’s a chance for a quick marriage between Kasay and the Panthers if the offer and the situation are right. Kasay turned down a three-year, $2 million offer from the Seahawks last year.
“We’ll have a chance to determine more during John’s visit,” Reale said.
Kasay, a four-year pro, has a career field-goal
accuracy of 78 percent. He made 20 of 24 field goals last season.”Gary would definitely be interested because Dom is there,” said his agent, Scott Casterline.
