Panthers offensive lineman Taylor Hearn allegedly caught street fighting in recent TMZ video

New, comments

The offensive guard was allegedly caught getting knocked out on video, and boy it wasn’t pretty.

NFL: New England Patriots at Carolina Panthers Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

According to a video released by TMZ, it appears that Carolina Panthers offensive lineman Taylor Hearn was involved in a street fight outside of a bar in Augusta, Ga. on Thursday night. No arrests were made following the incident.

Watch the video below to see what happened...

This definitely isn’t a good look for Taylor Hearn or the Panthers organization as a whole. Hearn is currently Trai Turner’s backup at right guard, but he did play in four games this past season. Based on the performance of the Panthers’ offensive line last year, there’s a good chance that Hearn isn’t a starter in this league. If he barely touched the field while the starters were struggling to protect Cam Newton, what does that say about Hearn?

This video might be his last straw with the Panthers organization His recent antics may place his football career in jeopardy, especially since he isn’t what you would call a “premier” lineman in the NFL. It appears that the offensive line is already experiencing some upgrades with the return and re-signing of Daryl Williams and the recent free agency signing of Matt Paradis, so it will be interesting to see what happens to Hearn. What do you think, Panthers fans?
