The Carolina Panthers waived wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett Tuesday after his second arrest for driving under the influence.

“I talked to Dwayne and told him the situation here is just not working out for either side,” Panthers GM Marty Hurney said in a release. “We had a chance to pick up off waivers a receiver we considered claiming when he became available four weeks ago. We wish Dwayne the best.”

That receiver is David Clowney, whom the Panthers claimed from the Jets Tuesday. Clowney played at Virginia Tech and was drafted in the fifth round by Green Bay in 2007. He has spent the last four seasons with the New York, catching 16 passes for 239 yards and one touchdown.

Already without star receiver Steve Smith this Sunday due to an ankle injury, Jarrett’s release leaves the Panthers and quarterback Jimmy Clausen with two fellow rookies atop the depth chart in Brandon LaFell and David Gettis.

Jarrett pleaded guilty to drunken driving in 2008, and he likely faces a suspension from the league if he signs with another team this season.

Meanwhile, the Panthers and their league-worst scoring offense (11.5 points per game) host the Bears Sunday in search of their first win of 2010.
