NFL teams made a few changes today, and one Jet found a new home. David Clowney tweeted that he is going to take his talents to Carolina today.
"Thanks for all the love Jets Fans," he said via Twitter. "Really wish I would have had a chance to shine for you guys. On the was to NC now tho."
The wide receiver had some great moments for the Jets, notably a preseason catch from then-rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez. But during the regular season, he didn't capitalize on all his opportunities. This season he had one catch for 22 yards.
Last season, in 13 games he had 14 catches for 191 yards. His per catch average is an impressive 14.9, but Clowney's lack of versatility on special teams was glaring, and he never got on ST coordinator Mike Westhoff's good side.
Clowney will take his blazing fast speed to Carolina, and see if his game can improve. A change of scenery did wonders for RB LaDainian Tomlinson after all. And he already got a welcome from Carolina quarterback Jimmy Clausen.
"Panther Nation welcome newest WR @DavidClowney to the squad! Excited to get to work tom to get ready for the Bears," Clausen said via his Twitter account.
