Muhsin Muhammad to Retire Today

Man, the hits keep coming for the Carolina Panthers. Muhsin Muhammad will announce his retirement today at a 12:30 press conference. Dwayne Jarrett is now a starting NFL receiver. No, seriously. Hidden fact: Carolina's running game takes a hit here, as Muhammad was still one of the four or five best blocking wide receivers in the game.

(Note: When I first posted this, I forgot that Muhammad was a free agent, so the Panthers had already apparently moved on from him. They still have just two rookies and Dwayne Jarrett available to help Steve Smith. Ugh.)

TO?

The GM and head coach seem to be on a short leash, the dude can still play. Over 800 yards for last year's Bills with their line and quarterbacks, he'd be a major headache opposite Smith.

I don't think he'd be the ideal guy with which to try to break-in Matt Moore/Jimmy Clausen. Or co-exist with Steve Smith.

I wonder if Carolina has made a phone call to AJ Smith regarding Vincent Jackson? If SD hadn't just drafted an RB in the first round, they'd be ideal trading partners.

There goes my all-time best fantasy football player predictions/drafts (2004). Picked him up late, friends mocked it, then I rocked the season (and lost in the playoffs).

WFT? Dwayne Jarrett has shown significant YOY improvement in every conventional receiving stat. If he continues on his current trend, he'll be a 100 catch, 1,000 yard receiver in like 4 years.
