Clowney Finishes First Year as a Carolina PantherWritten by playerpress.com Wednesday January 05 2011
One season after starting three games as a member of the New York Jets, wide receiver and world-class speedster David Clowney capped his first season as a Carolina Panther with his best game of a fractured season.
Clowney, a fifth-round pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2007 out of Virginia Tech, played the first four games of 2010 with the Jets before he was waived and grabbed by the Panthers off the waiver wire. He played a total of 13 games this season.
In the final game of the season, Clowney caught two long passes from rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen. Clowney finished the day with two catches for 56 yards, including a 31-yarder and a 25-yarder.
For the season, Clowney made seven catches for 124 yards, an average of 17.7 yards per catch, in a struggling offense that saw the Panthers use four different starting quarterbacks. One of Clowney’s catches came when he was still with the Jets.
For his career, Clowney has 22 catches for 341 yards, an average of 12.2 per game, and one touchdown.
The Panthers finished 2-14 and will pick first in the 2011 NFL Draft.
