Dwayne Jarrett released by Panthers

Posted by Will Brinson

As speculated earlier today following Dwayne Jarrett's arrest for DUI in Charlotte on Monday night, the Panthers have released the wide receiver, according to multiple reports.

Jarrett's DUI was his second in two years, and there was a chance that he'll face suspension from the NFL for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy; clearly the Panthers weren't going to wait around and find out.

Jerry Richardson hasn't hesitated to remove troubled personnel before, and he certainly didn't hesitate this time.

Besides, it's not like Jarrett's performance with the Panthers warranted holding onto him any longer.

UPDATE (5:15 p.m. ET): Apparently desperate for underachievers, the Panthers have filled Jarrett’s roster spot with former Jet David Clowney. Clowney offers speed, but as anyone who watched Hard Knocks knows, he’s not exactly consistent. And he’s not a great special teams player.

Dwayne Jarrett popped for DUI in Charlotte

Posted by Will Brinson

Dwayne Jarrett, perennial Panthers' bust and the reason why they don't have the two Steve Smiths on one squad, had another awkward moment in his already awkward career last night when he was arrested for driving while impaired in Mecklenburg County.

This is Jarrett's second DUI in two years , which means that he's likely to get a) nailed by the courts under North Carolina law, which is strict against DUI's and b) get nailed by the NFL with a suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

You may recall that Vincent Jackson's current contract situation was highly exacerbated because of his three-game suspension for a second DUI; it's not unreasonable that the NFL could consider a similar penalty for Jarrett.

The only difference is he's not a Pro Bowler, which means it's not out of the question for the Panthers to outright release him following his latest facepalm-worthy incident in Charlotte.
