Jimmy Clausen Signs with Panthers

Jimmy Clausen will make it to training camp on time as he has agreed to terms with the Carolina Panthers on the morning the Panthers open their 2010 training camp.  The deal is for four years and includes $2.53 million in guaranteed money...no word yet on if Clausen will show up in a stretch-hummer for his first practice with the Panthers.

Clausen started the past three seasons at Notre Dame, throwing for over 3700 yards and 28 touchdowns as a junior last season.  Unfortunately for the Fighting Irish, only 16 of Clausen's 34 starts in a Notre Dame uniform.  

Clausen was drafted 48th overall by the Carolina Panthers in this past springs NFL Draft after being projected by most as a lock to be selected in the first round but will have to challenge Panthers incumbent quarterback Matt Moore for playing time this fall.  Moore, an Oregon State alum, threw for 1053 yards and 8 touchdowns a year ago.

Clausen will trade his number 7 in for number 2 with the Panthers, he joins long-snapper J.J. Jansen, and Defensive Tackle Derek Landri as former Irish on the Carolina roster.
