CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Panthers have released disappointing quarterback David Carr and have come to terms with receiver Muhsin (MOO'-sihn) Muhammad.

Carr was let go a year after he signed a 2-year, $6 million deal with the Panthers following a 5-year stint as a starter in Houston. Carr struggled so badly when he took over for the injured Jake Delhomme (dehl-OHM') last season that he was eventually demoted to third-string.

Carr leaves Carolina as Muhammad prepares for his second stint with the franchise.

Muhammad signs his deal a week after he was released by the Chicago Bears.

Muhammad was the Panthers' second-round draft pick in 1996 and spent nine seasons with Carolina before being released in a salary-cap move.
