Dwayne Jarrett arrived at the Saskatchewan Roughriders' training camp amid considerable fanfare, only to become a footnote.

Jarrett battled a foot injury for most of his abbreviated time in Regina - an experiment that officially, mercifully ended Thursday when Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin announced that the former USC Trojans and Carolina Panthers receiver had retired at age 25.

The news was hardly shocking, considering the tenor of previous reportage pertaining to Jarrett. He was to have arrived in Regina in time for rookie camp, which kicked off May 31, only to be delayed by flight and immigration issues.

After making four connections on Saturday, Jarrett finally landed in the Queen City in time for the CFL team's main training camp to begin at the University of Regina. He took part in Sunday's lone session, looking impressive enough, but ended up sustaining the aforementioned foot injury.

I will always be able to say I was there in person the day Dwayne Jarrett caught a touchdown pass in a pro football game. Also, it was about 20 degrees with a wind chill at 10 that day.
