Kevin Cone to work out for Panthers on Friday

Former Falcons wide receiver Kevin Cone is set to work out for Carolina on Friday. The Jacksonville Jaguars are also interested in the former Georgia Tech product.

Wide receiver Kevin Cone, who was not extended an exclusive-rights tender by the Falcons, is set to workout for the Carolina Panthers on Friday, according to his agent Mark Clouser.

Also, Jacksonville is interested in Cone.

The former Georgia Tech player who walked onto the team after transferring from NAIA Shorter College was one of two exclusive rights free agents for the Falcons. Wide receiver Drew Davis did receive a tender offer of $570,000.

The Falcons signed Cone, a St. Pius High grad and the son of former Tech player Ronnie Cone, in 2011 after he started 10 games as a senior for the Jackets and reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds at Tech’s pro day.

Cone made the practice squad and was added to the active roster in Dec. 2011.

In 2012, Cone was active for 12 games but did not play any offensive snaps.

Last season, despite a rash of injuries, Cone couldn’t crack the lineup and saw Darius Johnson past him on the depth chart.

Overall, he played in 28 games, mostly on special teams. He had one career catch for 12 yards.

Wow, Carolina is really scraping the bottom of the barrel if they are even entertaining falcan't flunkies.....then again, their current receivers on the roster have a combined total NFL receptions of 6.   SIX!   But I still think Carolina will end up third in the division, with the Saints winning the division and Tampa coming in second. 

GEAUX SAINTS!!!!!

Letting (James) Jones get away to Oakland was just ridiculous! They could have found a good to great deep receiver in the draft. Man, they better have a helluva of a running game. Teams are going to load the box and just double dog dare them to pass! Well, they could show true panic and sign Peria Jerry or DeCoud! Oops, wow the Falcons already got one of those losers!
