One of my favorite all-time Cats and former KSR writer, Jeremy Jarmon, is getting his next shot. According to James Dator at Cat Scratch Reader, Jarmon worked out for the Carolina Panthers yesterday. Dator says that Jarmon was considered a “tough cut” for the Denver Broncos to make, but their loss could be the Panthers gain. If he were to join the team, he’d be able to fill his natural position as a 4-3 end. In both Washington and Denver, he was asked to play out of position in the 3-4.
The Panthers are a team slowly beginning to grow on me. I’m sure you’ll give it anyway, but I don’t care what your opinion of Cam Newton is. He was a fun player to watch in college and he’s proving to be just as entertaining in the NFL. Carolina would be a great fit for Jarmon, especially because they already have a UK presence starting at right tackle. Jeremy will be able to go up against former Cat and teammate, Garry Williams, during every practice.
Good luck, Jeremy! We’ll be rooting for you.
