Panthers release Delhomme
The Carolina Panthers have cut Jake Delhomme, just over one year after they gave him a lucrative contract extension, only to watch him have his worst season as a pro.
Agent Rick Smith confirmed the move late Thursday. It signals thar the Panthers intend to go with Matt Moore or someone new at quarterback for the first time since Delhomme burst onto the scene in 2003 and led the team to the Super Bowl.After committing six turnovers during a playoff loss to end the 2008 season, Delhomme had 18 interceptions in 2009 before being sidelined for the final five games with a broken finger.
The Panthers still owe Delhomme, who's 35, about $12.5 million in guaranteed money.http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d ... nfirm=true
