The Carolina Panthers have waived Everette Brown their second round pick of the 2009 draft. What hurts worse is that the team traded their 2010 first round pick to get in position to draft Brown. Everette Brown was a speed defensive end but worthless against the run and apparently only had one pass rushing move, a spin.
I am very impressed that the Carolina Panthers would release Everette Brown this early in his career. The Panthers have a recent tradition of holding onto bad draft picks too long trying to save face.
My happiness with the Panthers keeping David Clowney didn’t last long as the team released him today. Former Charger wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu has been picked up to join Legedu Naanee another hard to pronounce name.
The Panthers have added some help to the defensive line with the signing of defensive end George Selvie and defensive tackle Marcus Harrison formerly of the Rams and Bears respectively.
Former college linebacker turned NFL safety Stevie Brown a former Raider was signed mostly for his special teams play. Cornerback Josh Thomas a former Dallas Cowboy has also joined the Carolina Panthers as the team continues to tweak the roster.
The release of Everette Brown by the Panthers will put Armanti Edwards on notice. The former Appalachian State quarterback started off well at wide receiver this year then developed a case of the drops. If the Panthers are indeed prepared to walk away from unproductive players quicker than in the past, Edwards could be in trouble.
