Panthers claim WR David Clowney off waivers

The Carolina Panthers acted quickly in finding a replacement for Dwayne Jarrett.

They have claimed wide receiver David Clowney off waivers from the New York Jets. Clowney is a solid special teams player who got plenty of attention on the HBO show “Hard Knocks” over the summer.

“We had a chance to pick up off waivers a receiver we considered claiming when he became available four weeks ago," Hurney said in a statement released by the team. "We wish Dwayne the best. I talked to Dwayne and told him the situation here is just not working out for either side."

Jarrett was released following his second drunken driving arrest in less than three years. He’ll have legal issues and matters with commissioner Roger Goodell to square away before he can think about playing for another team.
