Panthers not standing pat at defensive end

If there's one position I think most fans would agree has been a very pleasant surprise it's been the defensive ends. Not that anyone doubted the talent of Charles Johnson or Greg Hardy, but there was tangible concern that a lack of pressure from the defensive tackles would result in the DEs being too often double teamed and taken out of plays, as was prevalent in the 2011 pre-season. With the move to cut Everette Brown and bring in George Selvie it appeared the depth at DE was established, but the Panthers are ensuring they leave no stone unturned when it comes to improving this football team.

Jason LaCanfora of NFL.com is reporting the Panthers are bringing in former Washington Redskins DE Jeremy Jarmon for a workout today. The 6'3", 286 lb Jarmon was a former 3rd round pick taken in the supplemental draft in 2009 out of Kentucky. He entered the draft following a positive test for a banned supplement, which was said to be an over-the-counter dietary supplement. 

Traded from Washington to Denver this season in exchange for WR Jabbar Gaffney he was one of the final cuts the Broncos made in trimming their roster and was described as a 'tough cut'. After the jump you'll see Jarmon's statistics thus far, but remember he's been playing out of position- he is a 4-3 DE who was asked to play 3-4 DE in Washington's system, so I wouldn't be too dismissive of his lack of sacks. While at Kentucky he was a two time All-SEC defensive end.
