Dwayne Jarrett Charged With DWI


dwaynejarrettmug.jpgIt’s the offseason.  It’s a time when players aren’t busy with minicamps or training camps.  They aren’t in some dorm room studying a playbook.  This is their off time.

Dwayne Jarrett used part of his off time to do a little driving while impaired early this morning.  The news came today from the Mecklenburg County Sherriff’s Department.

The Panthers have to be very disappointed considering statements made this offseason especially those from Jake Delhomme that Jarrett would be the team’s number two receiver.

He struggled last season and was inactive for much of the year while contributing six receptions for 73 yards.  Word out of Charlotte was that he was also having trouble picking up the playbook.

Instead, he’s picking up his checkbook to pay a $1,000 secured bond.

Panthers spokesman Charlie Dayton: “We have become aware of it and are trying to get more information.”

“More information” could include what impaired the young player, whether or not he has a problem and what the team’s plans will be for him after this incident.  Whatever they find, this is hardly good news for Jarrett or the team.

I’ll ask the same question here that I’ve asked every time a player does this – don’t you make enough money to call a cab to avoid situations like this one?

    damn this kid is annoying always trying to find a way to make things worse… ne ways y is that all the updated mock drafts lately are saying we are going to pick a QB in the first round i dont want Brian Brohm and all the quality LT’s are going after us Clady is supposed to go Denver i mean is Rivals.com serious do we really think we need another Rookie QB we alrdy have Moore and Brett i mean it sounds like such a dumb pick in the first RD.

  • John White

    I don’t believe the team will take a QB early on.  In fact, I think Atlanta wants Ryan while Baltimore will likely take Brohm.  The Panthers will almost definitely go tackle in the first with an outside shot at running back.  If Kenny Phillips falls they could take him with the big hole the team has as safety.

    How dissapointing.

  • John White

    I is disappointing. I hate to see a guy that young doing something stupid.  He can still recover from this but he certainly has to pay the piper now.

  • Rob

    the panthers, unless clady falls to them, will be taking a de in the first round and an ol in the second. baltimore may draft a qb but not in the first or second round as it’s not heir biggest need and they already have three. the panthers may use one of their 3rd round picks for the right qb if he should fall. now it seems the other may go to a wr. i guess they should’ve picked up stallworth
