CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Carolina Panthers have released disappointing quarterback David Carr and have come to terms with receiver Muhsin Muhammad.
Carr was let go a year after he signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Panthers following a five-year stint as a starter in Houston. Carr struggled so badly when he took over for the injured Jake Delhomme last season that he was eventually demoted to third-string.
Carr leaves Carolina as Muhammad prepares for his second stint with the franchise.
Muhammad was expected to sign his contract later Wednesday, a week after he was released by the Chicago Bears.
Muhammad spent nine seasons with Carolina before being released in a salary-cap move after the 2004 season.
