Almost healed, Jimmy Clausen fighting for another shot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Free agent quarterback Jimmy Clausen, who spent last season on injured reserve recovering from a torn labrum, is hoping to latch on with a new team. He won't be back with the Panthers.

Clausen, 26, said his arm is at 95 percent and he's ready to compete for a backup job somewhere.

“I'm still really young," Clausen told USA Today. “I'm going into my fifth year in the league. I feel great. This is probably right now the healthiest I've been since my junior year in college, to be honest with you.”


Panthers pare 11 off roster


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2013) The Panthers have announced 11 cuts, the most significant of which are quarterback Jimmy Clausen and cornerback Drayton Florence.

The others are as follows: wide receivers James Shaw and Brenton Bersin, tight end Zack Pianalto, guard Hayworth Hicks, defensive tackle Sione Fua, linebackers Doug Hogue and Ben Jacobs, safety Robert Lester and running back Tauren Poole.

The 32-year Florence has spent most of his career as a starter with San Diego, Jacksonville, Buffalo and Detroit.


Jimmy Clausen in a pickle; loses job with Panthers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2013) Jimmy Clausen lost his starting job last season to Cam Newton. Now he's even lost his roster spot with the Panthers.

Clausen was released on Saturday, reports NFL.com. He was beaten out by Derek Anderson in the battle for the backup role to Newton. He will finish his tenure in Carolina with 1,558 yards passing and meager 52.5 completion percentage. Clausen managed just three touchdown passes and nine interceptions.

Despite winning the job, Anderson tweeted that he will miss Clausen. "Forget football ... hard to see a good friend go," he wrote.


Clausen a cap casualty in Carolina?


(2/22/2012) The Charlotte Observer reports that the Panthers might waive QB Jimmy Clausen to save just over $900,000 in salary cap space. Clausen has been replaced by Cam Newton as the starting quarterback in Carolina.

Clausen inactive for Week 1


(9/11/2011) Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen was ruled inactive for Week 1 against the Cardinals. That means QB Derek Anderson will serve as the primary backup for Cam Newton in Sunday's game at Arizona.

Clausen back after rest day


(8/28/2011) Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen returned to practice and resumed throwing after missing practice on Saturday. He injured his elbow last week and saw limited action in Thursday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Clausen barely plays Thursday


(8/26/2011) Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen was able to play in Thursday's game against the Bengals despite a sore elbow. He came in for Cam Newton late in the game, and had another uninspiring effort. Clausen completed 4 of 7 passes for 35 yards in the loss.

Clausen dealing with sore elbow


(8/25/2011) The Charlotte Observer reports Wednesday that Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen is experiencing soreness in his throwing elbow. He bruised it in the loss to the Dolphins on Friday, so the team is considering him questionable for Thursday's game against the Bengals. Clausen is expected to relieve starter Cam Newton sometime in the second half if he plays.

Clausen not great Friday


(8/20/2011) Jimmy Clausen, who started last week for Carolina, entered the game Friday at Miami to begin the second half and went 9 for 15 for 69 yards. Coach Ron Rivera declined to say when he'll decide whether to start rookie Cam Newton or Clausen in the regular-season opener Sept. 11 against Arizona. "They were efficient at best," Rivera said. "They made some good reads, made some good decisions but missed a couple of throws. That was disappointing."

Clausen heads to bench for second game


(8/17/2011) Panthers rookie QB Cam Newton will start Friday night's preseason game against Miami, coach Ron Rivera announced Wednesday. As for whether Newton will start the regular season opener on Sept. 11, Rivera said, "People do want to read into it, but just know that we have a plan and we're sticking to it. And as we go through the process sometime next week, we'll have a real good feel for what we're going to do as we go into the regular season." Rivera said the first-team offense will play about half of Friday's game and that Jimmy Clausen will get reps with the first teamers, thus keeping the QB competition even. "We'll do like we did last week, where Cam came in and played with the first group in the second quarter," Rivera said. "Again, we want to make sure everybody gets a chance to play and work with the guys and keep that competition going."

Decision between Clausen and Newton coming


(8/15/2011) The Charlotte Observer reports that Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he will name a starting quarterback by next week, before the team's third preseason game on Aug. 25. Just as the team did in Saturday's preseason opener, Jimmy Clausen started off as the No. 1 QB Monday and rookie Cam Newton backed him up in Monday's practice.

Clausen has inconsistent opener


(8/14/2011) Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen had an up and down preseason opener Saturday night against the Giants. He started the game ahead of rookie Cam Newton, and he finished 4 of 7 passing for 69 yards with one touchdown and one interception. His touchdown was an 18-yard pass to new TE Greg Olsen, but his interception was returned 56 yards by Giants LB Michael Boley for a touchdown. Clausen said he "still has a ways to go" before he gets to where he needs to be. "Obviously there were some ups and downs, some mistakes and some good plays by everybody," he said. "It's good to just get back out there."

Clausen to start preseason opener


(8/12/2011) Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen said he's been told by coach Ron Rivera that he will start Saturday night's preseason game against the New York Giants. Clausen is trying to win the starting job ahead of rookie No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton. "Myself and Cam have had ups and downs throughout camp and we're still learning," Clausen said. "We're still young and I think (Saturday) is another big test. I can't wait to get out there."

Clausen No. 1 QB on depth chart


(8/10/2011) The Panthers released their first depth chart of the preseason, with Jimmy Clausen listed as their starting quarterback. Clausen has been getting a majority of the first-team reps so far in training camp with rookie Cam Newton getting mostly time with the second team.

Clausen running with first team


(8/2/2011) Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen is still working with the starters in training camp. No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton is running with the second team. Derek Anderson is not allowed to practice until Thursday.

Clausen's got company in Cam


(4/29/2011) The Panthers made Auburn QB Cam Newton the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, giving them an athletic passer with a polarizing personality to help them on and off the field. Panthers head coach Ron Rivera stressed Newton isn't designed to be a "franchise savior," but said he'll get a shot to play as a rookie and compete with Jimmy Clausen. Clausen, a rookie QB for the Panthers last season, was complimentary toward Newton upon his drafting, welcoming him to Carolina, but it's clear that he will try and compete for the starting job.

Clausen begins to run


(4/5/2011) Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen posted on Twitter on Tuesday that he finished his first workout since foot surgery this offseason and "finally ran since (Week 17)." He admitted via Twitter that he was out of shape but seemed confident that he'd be healthy soon enough.

Clausen will have competition


(2/25/2011) Panthers coach Ron Rivera, speaking at the NFL Combine on Thursday, made it clear the team will look to add competition at QB, which means Jimmy Clausen is not guaranteed the starting job in 2011. "We need to identify a franchise quarterback, most certainly," Rivera said. The Panthers ranked last in the league in offense last season, and Jimmy Clausen, chosen with the Panthers' first pick a year ago, No. 48 overall, was the league's lowest-rated passer. "We feel we've got to make sure we have the guy that can be our franchise quarterback," Rivera said. "Whether he's on our current roster, he's in the draft or free agency ... Look at it throughout the league and franchise quarterbacks are what's happening in this league in terms of it becoming a passing league. I come from a place, having been in San Diego, you've got Philip Rivers, a tremendous quarterback, and we've got to find a situation like that again."

Clausen has foot surgery


(2/4/2011) The Charlotte Observer reports Thursday that Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen had surgery on his left foot last week, a procedure believed to be minor. Clausen was struggling with the aftermath of toe surgery last offseason, and said he wouldn't be 100 percent back until he had a chance to rest. He played most of his senior season at Notre Dame with two torn ligaments in his big toe.

GM wants competition for Clausen


(1/26/2011) The Charlotte Observer reports that Panthers GM Marty Hurney said Tuesday that the team could use the No. 1 pick in April's draft on a quarterback. The report says that whether through the draft or free agency, Hurney indicated the Panthers want to create competition for Jimmy Clausen after finishing with the league's worst offense and passing attack in 2010. "That's the No.1 need," Hurney said. "I think we have good players. It all starts with solidifying that spot. That's something that everybody in the league would agree with." Clausen was 1-9 as a starter and had the NFL's lowest passer rating as a rookie. The former Notre Dame starter completed 52.5 percent of his passes for 1,558 yards with nine interceptions and three touchdowns, none to a wide receiver. Clausen, a second-rounder last year when the Panthers did not have a first-round pick, was forced into early action by the shoddy play of Matt Moore, who later was lost for the season with a shoulder injury. Moore is a free agent and is not expected to return. Tony Pike, a sixth-round pick in 2010 who attempted 12 passes as a rookie, is the only other quarterback under contract. "We have to put ourselves in a position that we have competition, and do whatever we can to help our chances in the offseason of having consistent play out of that position," Hurney said. "But Jimmy's going to grow, just like any young quarterback. We feel like he's got the tools to be able to succeed in this league. Tony Pike's going to get more work."

Clausen goes back to work


(1/25/2011) QB Jimmy Clausen said on his Twitter account Monday that he's returning to Charlotte to get back to work. Presumably, Clausen will get his first chance to meet with new coach Ron Rivera, offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and quarterbacks coach Mike Shula. Clausen finished the Panthers' season as the starting quarterback but threw just three touchdowns vs. nine interceptions with just 5.21 yards per attempt. He's expected to compete for a spot along the Panthers' depth chart in 2011.

Clausen will get competition


(1/12/2011) When asked if QB Jimmy Clausen is the starter heading into next season, new Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said, “You assume right now until you find that other guy to come in and compete. ... He is a young man with some talent and some abilities and we have to be sure the guy who comes in as the coordinator as well as the quarterbacks coach understand that." Clausen finished the Panthers' season as the starting quarterback but threw just three touchdowns vs. nine interceptions with just 5.21 yards per attempt.

Clausen gets 'Lucky'


(1/6/2011) No one's expecting Jimmy Clausen to be the quarterback of the future for the Panthers, but a player who could have taken the job away from him without a fight is out of the picture. Three days after a masterful performance in the Orange Bowl, Stanford QB Andrew Luck announced in a two-paragraph statement that he's staying in school. "I am committed to earning my degree in architectural design from Stanford University and am on track to accomplish this at the completion of the spring quarter of 2012," the redshirt sophomore said.

Clausen can't win one for Gipper


(1/2/2011) QB Jimmy Clausen could not lead the Panthers to a victory in John Fox's last game as a head coach, as the Atlanta Falcons trounced Carolina, 31-10, in Week 17. "There was definitely a lot of emotion before and after the game," Clausen said. "I feel bad that we couldn't get a victory for coach Fox. It was an honor to play for him and I wish him the best of luck." Clausen completed 19 of 33 passes for 182 yards and one interception. He fired a 2-yard touchdown to Jeff King on the final drive, but it was too little, too late by then.

Clausen nearing 1,500 yards


(12/30/2010) Panthers rookie QB Jimmy Clausen needs just 124 passing yards to surpass 1,500 in his rookie season. He looks to take down the milestone in Week 17 against the Falcons. Unfortunately, Clausen was at the helm of the Panthers' 31-10 loss to the Falcons in Week 14 and he passed for a measly 107 yards while throwing no touchdowns and one interception.
