Posted Sept. 02, 2012
The Panthers have announced they've made a move at defensive tackle, signing free agent Dwan Edwards and waiving last year's third-round draft pick Terrell McClain.||||||| Sunday's announcement to waive McClain comes as a surprise. He started 12 games last season as rookie after being selected 65th overall by the Panthers. He's the latest third-round draft pick to fail with the Panthers, joining former defensive tackles Corvey Irvin and Atiyyah Ellison and running back Eric Shelton as busts.
Posted Dec. 06, 2011
A person familiar with the situation says the Carolina Panthers are placing both starting rookie defensive tackles - McClain and Sione Fua - on injured reserve. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because moves have not been announced.||||||| Fua and McClain were both third-round draft picks this year and have been starters since week one. However, Fua suffered a significant right hamstring strain prior to Sunday's game against Tampa Bay and didn't play. McClain sprained his left knee during the first half and did not return.
Posted Aug. 01, 2011
The Panthers have reached agreement with their last remaining draftee, third-round selection Terrell McClain. The team announced the deal Monday. McClain is a 6-foot-2, 297-pound defensive tackle out of South Florida who was the 65th overall pick in last spring's NFL draft. McClain was all-Big East first team selection his senior year. He is expected to report to camp immediately.||||||| New Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Sunday that McClain had been missing the chance to learn the team's system by holding out from Carolina's first two days of practice. The Panthers' top selection, No. 1 overall Cam Newton, signed a four-year, $22 million contract on Friday.
