Former Carolina Panthers quarterback Jimmy Clausen reveals that he wants another chance to compete for a job in the NFL.

Former Carolina Panthers quarterback Jimmy Clausen has admitted that he is desperate for another chance to prove himself in the NFL.

The 26-year-old was selected in the second round of the 2010 Draft by the Panthers, but struggled as a rookie and watched as the club selected Cam Newton with the first overall pick in 2011 to replace him.

"That's what I want. The only thing I can ask for is an opportunity, a legit opportunity to compete to be a number two and hopefully work my way up," Clausen told USA Today.

"It's tough. Obviously, I'm a competitor and want to get somewhere and compete."

Clausen has thrown for 1,558 yards along with three touchdowns to nine interceptions in his 13 NFL games.
