Carolina Panthers Give Dwayne Jarrett a New Opportunity

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.

    The panther really doesn’t know how to handle issue like these. I have no idea how the front office functions? Why would you keep him if you knew all along that you’re going to drop him? The panthers drafted 4 WR this year. And DJ respectlly wanted a trade but the panthers didn’t want to let him go? does that doesn’t make any sense, if you know its not going to work out why make him sit on the bench let him find a team that would used him. I truly think they have the worst front office next to the redskin

    I wish him well,I have a feeling his college coach will be calling him very soon.

      I wouldn’t be too surprised, Mark…Or maybe Cincy. They seem to have an affinity for players with a shady past.
