With most seats are held by permanent seat licenses, only about 7,000 tickets are available for each of the 10 games. They will be sold beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday through Ticketmaster’s phone and online services. Sales will not take place at Bank of America Stadium.
Ticket prices range from $51 to $90 and do not include service charges.
The Panthers have sold out 51 consecutive games and 130 of 132 overall.
STEELERSPITTSBURGH ó Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller has agreed to a six-year contract that runs through the 2014 season.
Miller, one of the top blockers among NFL tight ends, had one season remaining on the five-year contract he signed after being Pittsburgh’s first-round draft pick in 2005.
Miller, 26, has played on two Super Bowl-winning teams in his first four NFL seasons. He caught 48 passes for 514 yards and three touchdowns last season after catching 47 passes in 2007.
The 6-foot-5, 256-pound Miller has 168 catches for 1,932 yards, an 11.5 yards per reception average and 21 touchdowns during his career. He also has three touchdown catches in the playoffs.
49ERSSANTA CLARA, Calif. ó San Francisco cornerback Walt Harris was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, two months after surgery on his right knee put the former Pro Bowl player’s career in jeopardy.
Harris tore a ligament in his knee during minicamp workouts on May 19 in a collision with receiver Dominique Zeigler.
MCNAIR ESTATE
JACKSON, Miss. ó Even though he left no will, slain former NFL quarterback Steve McNair’s entire immediate family has been provided for under instructions he left before his death.
McNair’s former agent, James “Bus” Cook, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that McNair’s wife, Mechelle, is not trying to exclude McNair’s mother and two children he had with other women.
McNair was killed July 4 in a murder-suicide committed by Sahel Kazemi.
Cook says McNair had wills drawn up two or three times but never signed them. He said Mechelle McNair is not contesting the legal status of her husband’s two other children, but that court documents might have confused reporters.
