Default Smith to Jarrett: 'You're here to play football'

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/8057172/Smith-to-Jarrett:-'You're-here-to-play-football'

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Steve Smith wants Carolina Panthers teammate Dwayne Jarrett to get his act together.

Carolina's three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was asked Monday if the embattled Jarrett was due for a coming-out party after his disappointing rookie season was followed by an offseason charge of driving by impaired.

"You know, the party session is actually over. This is the NFL," Smith said. "You make plays. You're here to play football. You do the party scene at your own discretion, but on Sundays, we're here to play football. If you can't play football, you won't be playing with the Carolina Panthers or any NFL team.

"So, this isn't a poke at anybody," he added at a charity golf tournament hosted by fellow NFL players Torry and Terrence Holt. "That's just the way it is. You know, you produce, you're in. You don't produce, you're out."

For years, the Panthers have searched for a second capable receiver to relieve the double teams faced by Smith seemingly every week, and team executives drafted Jarrett in the second round last year with the hope that he would develop into that kind of threat.

But he struggled to adjust to the NFL, never cracked the starting lineup, played in just seven games and caught six passes for 73 yards with no touchdowns. Then, when he reported last month for the team's offseason conditioning, Jarrett was arrested after police said he crossed the center line and ran a red light in the Charlotte suburb of Mint Hill.

The police report said Jarrett's blood-alcohol level was .12, above North Carolina's legal limit of .08 for driving. He pleaded not guilty to the DWI charge and faces a June 23 court date.

Now the Panthers are turning to one of their best players from their past to mentor Jarrett and become a quality No. 2 option to Smith.

They re-signed Muhsin Muhammad, who was released by the Bears. Muhammad turns 35 in May, spent nine seasons with Carolina after he was picked in the second round of the 1996 draft and still holds three club records.

"A lot of people look at (his) age, but I think he's like fine wine," Smith said.

Looks like Steve Smith is finally growing up..Moose was a good pickup for them, He still has a little left in the tank and will open up the field for Smith to operate because Musin is such a good possession reciever who you have to pay attention to. Maybe Jarett can blossom next season. Carolina should be a contender in the NFC next season.

Wow, no mention of the fact that Carolina signed D.J. Hackett?

yeah, hackett+ smith + moose is great already. if jarrett matures into an nfl player that's 4 legitimate receivers for delhomme

carolina could definitely be a contender in 08.

I just wonder when they'll draft a QB, jake's not getting any younger

Dude. A turkey sandwich could be a contender in the NFC next season. Have you seen the teams there? I think even the 49ers were technically still alive for a playoff spot with two weeks to go. Now THAT'S sad.

Some nice weapons on the team for when Cowher takes over the Panthers in 09.

Delhome was off to a good start last year and then he got hurt and the Panthers season went wayyyyyy down hill after that. This team has got alot of work to do on that D line now with all the losses there. But its true the panthers must get a replacement for Delhome soon. Jarrett.... It Is Time To Grow Up and Earn Your Paycheck Pal!!!
