Patriots sign Panthers draft bust Terrell McClain

It’s only been a few weeks since former Panthers defensive tackle Terrell McClain was the highest-drafted member of the 2011 Draft class to be cut by the team that picked him (a titlesince stolen by former Eagles safety Jaiquawn Jarrett).

Today, McClain’s a Patriot.

The Patriots announced they signed McClain, and releasedMarcus Forston to make room for him on the roster.

McClain was the 65th overall pick a year ago out of South Florida, but fell out of favor in Carolina after an inconsistent offseason and training camp.

McClain showed some flashes of penetrating ability, but despite getting plenty of snaps for an injury depleted Panthers team in 2011, he quickly fell down the depth chart this year, and was replaced by former Bills defensive tackle Dwan Edwardson the roster and in the starting lineup.

Not Panther related, but I wish him well.

since the headline in the article identifies him as "Panther bust" I would certainly think this qualifies as Panther related.
