Shortly after the release of embattled wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett, Carolina made a decision, which wasn’t long in coming. The Panthers signed ex-New York Jet David Clowney off of waivers to replace the now-departed Jarrett.

Clowney, a 2007 Fifth-Round pick of the Jets, is not a former USC wide receiver. That in itself is a bonus.

Apparently, the Panthers were very interested in the possibility of acquiring Clowney when he was first released approximately four weeks ago, but Carolina decided against it, in order to give Dwayne Jarrett a chance. It’s amazing the way things work out sometimes, as Clowney and teammate Patrick Turner were released by the Jets today, in order to make room for wide receiver Santonio Holmes who is returning from a four game suspension and defensive tackle Howard Green.
