Carolina Panthers Cut QB Jake Delhomme | 2010 NFL Free Agency
In a somewhat shocker the Carolina Panthers cut their aging veteran quarterback Jake Delhomme on the first day of the free agency. Delhomme had a good career with the Panthers, as he took the team to their only Super Bowl in 2004.
Since that time Delhomme has had his ups and downs in his career and its final chapter may have been this past year when he was embarrassingly bad on the field. This poor performance came just after the team signed him to a huge contract last offseason.
With the strong play of young quarterback Matt Moore, Delhomme became expendable and the team obviously decided they were ready to cut ties now and not get into a quarterback controversy.
This was probably the best move in the long run as Moore is ready to lead the Panthers and should increase their odds of making the playoffs. Look for Steve Smith to have a bounce back season with Moore under center.
