It has been reported today that special teams gunner Jarrod Cooper was released today from the Carolina Panthers organization. An official reason why has not been given from the Panthers but sources report that last week Jarrod Cooper was stopped last week by the Charlotte Mecklenburg Sheriff's Department and cited for driving without a license. There are also records in the Charlotte Mecklenburg police records of Cooper having an outstanding warrant for a moving violation, although there is no direct connection or confirmation that this had anything to do with his release.
Cooper had been in trouble with the Panthers last year and served a four game suspension for Cooper's arrest in September 2003 for driving while intoxicated, possession of a controlled substance, speeding and driving with a revoked license. Cooper had also been involved in a one-car accident involving alcohol in February 2002. He was convicted of drunken driving as a result of the accident. After his suspension, he was reinstated by the league and basically given a second chance to keep himself clean by the Panthers organization.
