On what is turning out to be a bad weekend for highly touted quarterbacks from the past few years, the Carolina Panthers have moved on from a former second-round pick.

Per multiple reports, Jimmy Clausen was let go by the Panthers, who also released veteran cornerback Drayton Florence as well.

Clausen now joins Matt Leinart, Tim Tebow and Vince Young as one-time hot shot quarterbacks in college and high draft hopefuls, who have been let go during this weekend of final NFL cuts.
