Former Alexandria & JSU Star TJ Heath Picked Up By Carolina Panthers
Tuesday afternoon former Alexandria star T.J. Heath was on the 13th hole at Stoney Brook golf course in Jacksonville when his cell phone rang. On the other end of the line was a shot to keep his NFL dream alive. The Carolina Panthers signed the former JSU All-American and 24 hours after the call, he was at Wofford College practicing with the team. Heath is entering his 5th season in the NFL. He's played for several teams including Cincinnati, Buffalo, Cleveland and Miami. The Dolphins released him in March, but he stayed in shape and will have a chance to earn a spot on the team during the NFL preseason.
