Little Dwayne, all grown up

34 posts in this topic

Just had a startling conversation with WR Dwayne Jarrett. We'll have more from him in tomorrow's paper, but the first impression is that he's basically a different person.

In short, he sounded mature, which is something the 23-year-old had never before been accused of.

Gone were a lot of the tired cliches, the stock lines he used to use to explain away his shortcomings -- which were numerous.

"I don't want to say I regret (the way he handled himself)," Jarrett said. "I just wasn't aware."

That sums up his first three years here. But this camp, he's been a completely different player, looking more assertive on the field.

Getting him out there would be huge, and he's showing sings of finally delivering returns on the Panthers' four-year investment.

He's catching everything in practice, and with his size, could become a valuable tool for QB Matt Moore.

Another quick highlight: Receivers coach Tyke Tolbert raves about him, but discussing his size advantage, said "he doesn't have to be open to be open."

Stay tuned for more.

I was at camp yesterday and Jarrett was the stand out in my eyes. He caught everything thrown his way with the exception of one drop. He even made a diving catch during noncontact drills. He looked strong.

Maybe him finally trying to work like an NFL player and having a more capable quarterback will help him turn the page. This article kind of proves all of his admirers wrong, he's been a flop here because of his own actions. It's not because we haven't given him a chance. He never deserved a chance.

IF he actually showed up this year it would be huge for us. And it would totally justify the $26 dollars I spent for his autographed jersey. Might have to find a place for it in the display case. I have been keeping it in the closet for the past 2 years. Wasn't worthy of a spot next to Smith, Kasay, and others,:D
