Jose Theodore Waiting For A Chance To Play

from Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel,

Theodore admitted his agent has not heard from the Panthers, who seem content to go with 23-year-old Jacob Markstrom as their starter and veteran Scott Clemmensen as his backup. But Theodore said he has received interest from two other unnamed teams.

"The Panthers are still my No. 1 choice. I don't know if the door is closed, but there's been no discussions,'' Theodore said Thursday in an exclusive interview with the Sun Sentinel. "Training camp is still a month away, so I'm not ready to think about [retirement].

"I was in the same situation before I signed in Minnesota before the [2010 season]. There's not a lot of room out there so I'll just wait, stay in shape because that's what I can control. I know I still have options.''...

"My injury last year hurt my value with me not finishing the season, but look at just two years ago when I played [53] games and we finished first in our division,'' Theodore said. "It's not like I didn't show the league what I can do. Last year was tough for me personally and the team.

"Not knowing when you're going to play was the same for everybody, but still strange. It's a season you want to forget.''
