Panthers release WR Dwayne Jarrett; claim David Clowney off waivers
On the same day he was arrested for his second DUI in less than three years, the Carolina Panthers announced the release of wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett on Tuesday, according to a report from ESPN.com. As his replacement, the Panthers picked up wide receiver David Clowney off waivers from the New York Jets.
Jarrett was pulled over slightly before 2 a.m. early Tuesday morning for speeding in Charlotte, North Carolina. According to police reports, Jarrett refused to take a breathalyzer test to determine his B.A.C. and will have to wait a few weeks before finding out the results of his blood test. He posted $2,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon.
After being selected in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft, Jarrett has been nothing but a disappointment for the Panthers. He had high expectations after setting the Pac 10 record for most touchdowns (41), but has struggled to make the transition to playing at the NFL level. In his fourth season, Jarrett has caught just 35 passes for 428 yards and one touchdown.
