On Tuesday morning at approximately 2 am, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett found himself in the back of a police cruiser, after being arrested for DWI. A little more than 12 hours later, the receiver was without a job, and is now ex-Panthers wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett.
Once again, Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson proved to his team and the rest of the NFL, that he will not tolerate criminal acts off the field. The Panthers also have a history of not bringing in players with a sketchy past, as well.
It’s a shame, really. I hope the guy works out the problems in his life, because clearly his priorities are out of whack.
I talked to Dwayne and told him the situation here is just not working out for either side, we had a chance to pick up off waivers a receiver we considered claiming when he became available four weeks ago. We wish Dwayne the best. –Panthers General Manager, Marty Hurney
Indeed. Good luck in your future, DJ. Sorry things just didn’t work out here in Carolina.
