Keyshawn cut by the Panthers - LOL!
I laughed myself into a coughing fit when I saw this story. The Carolina Panthers cut Keyshawn Johnson after having drafted another big USC receiver, Dwayne Jarrett, in the recent draft.
Anyone that watched the draft has to be laughing. Keyshawn, that loud idiot, was one of the guest "experts" on ESPN's draft coverage, and was anything but objective the entire time. He was cheerleading for the Panthers and encouraging them to take these offensive players. When they drafted Jarrett, he talked about how he'd show him the ropes, etc.
OOPS! How do you like your "boy" now, Keyshawn?
Now they're saying he'll have a tough time finding a team and might have to take a huge pay cut. The Panthers seriously played him like a fool, as he clearly didn't see it coming. They could have cut him before to give him a chance on the open free agent market (that is now closed, teams having spent most of their money and filled most of their needs). They could have at least warned him so he didn't make a huge fool of himself at the draft on national television. Instead, as soon as they drafted his replacement, buh-bye!

As a Panthers fan, I rejoice in seeing Key shown the door.

Bring him home to the Jets! That's where he belongs, I still wear my #19 to the games.

He has got to be considered one of the most overhyped (self-induced) WRs I have ever seen. All talk, no results. I laughed hard when I saw this.

Seriously, so funny. When I read he got cut all I could think of was how much of a dumbass he was during the draft. He was talking about bringing the USC dynasty to Carolina and now his ass is out. Hilarious.

I would so much rather see a Panther receiver corps of Steve Smith, Dwayne Jarrett and Drew Carter sans Keyshawn Johnson.
Good day for the Panther world. Too bad we didn't draft Steve Smith.

No results doesn't really describe Keshawn. I don't like the guy, but he was a very solid WR for a long time and he was never afraid to go over the middle or block. Just because you don't like his persona doesn't mean he's not a good player.

**** that. We don't need him taking any PT away from Cotchery. Or even Brad Smith for that matter.

I don't think the Jets will be interested.
