Which former players are deserving of the unwanted distinction of being in the Carolina Panthers Hall of Shame?

There has been an abundance of talent walk through the doors of the Carolina Panthers throughout their brief 26-year history. The organization might not have a Super Bowl to show for their efforts as yet, but they’ve had some near misses and plenty of memorable moments along the way.

Plenty of good, obviously.

But there has been some bad, too.

The Panthers also have players that failed to live up to expectations. This has set the franchise back massively in some cases and cost the team a substantial amount of money in the process.

Swinging and missing are part of life in the NFL. Whether the quality overall outbalances the dismal choices is what separates the good teams from the great.

With this in mind, we picked out eight former Panthers players that deserve a spot in the team’s Hall of Shame.

Dwayne Jarrett – Former Carolina Panthers WR

  • 2007-2010

Dwayne Jarrett was a wide receiver with the world at his feet coming out of USC. The Panthers picked him up in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft and had high hopes he’d become the next great pass-catching weapon given the player’s physical attributes.

How wrong they were.

Jarrett never really got going in Carolina. He struggled to make a smooth adjustment to the NFL and never eclipsed more than 200 receiving yards before the organization finally cut their losses following the 2010 campaign.

His problems with the law didn’t help. Jarrett was arrested for two DWI’s during his time with the Panthers and unsurprisingly, was unable to find another team after his release.
