NFL Players are returning to work Friday morning. One of the first to show up at his team’s facility was Jimmy Clausen in Carolina.

Sam Wyche of reports that the Panthers had a voluntarily team meeting at 8:45 a.m. Clausen arrived at the team’s facility at 7:25.

Wyche asked Clausen the obvious question: what does he think of the Cam Newton selection?

"They've got to do what they got to do," Clausen said.

It will be interesting to see how Clausen and Newton jive when the two start working out and practicing together. As Joe Fortenbaugh of National Football Post points out, Clausen currently wears number 2 -- Newton's number at Auburn. Generally, rookies purchase their numbers from veterans. But how would it look for Clausen to sell to the man brought in to replace him so soon?

Being a Notre Dame hater I always thought that this guy was overrated. His stock went up because people thought they saw something in this kid that I never saw. He was a mediocre QB at best at Dame and an awful QB for the panthers. I'll put money on him being gone before his contract expires or that he holds a clipboard and gives hand signals for the rest of his NFL career. I hope that his short tenure at Dame taught him a thing or 2.
