Okay, today’s the day. While at my soccer match, the Carolina Panthers have been busy for quite some time making roster moves. I will add to this post as more names are released…no pun intended.
At quarterback, Carolina will roll with three. Surprisingly enough, the odd man out is Hunter Cantwell, who was placed on waivers. I didn’t see that one coming — Carolina plays a good poker face! I personally like the move, as Tony Pike will show more upside than Cantwell has.
Here are the rest of today’s cuts so far, in no particular order:
- Linebacker Mortty Ivy
- Center/Guard C.J. Davis IR
- Wide receiver Kenny Moore
- Cornerback C.J. Wilson
- Cornerback Brian Witherspoon
- Defensive Tackle Tank Tyler
- Defensive Tackle Corvey Irvin
- Fullback Rashawn Jackson*
- Wide Receiver Trent Guy*
- Offensive lineman Ray Hisatake
- Rob Pettiti
- Safety Aaron Francsico
- Tight end Jamie Petrowski
- Linebacker Quinton Culberson
- Linebacker Sean Ware *
- Running back Josh Vaughan
- Running back Dantrell Savage
- Cornerback R.J. Stanford
- Offensive lineman Andrew Crummey
- Defensive end Eric Moore
- Guard Duke Robinson IR
* = Carolina plans to re-sign player to it’s practice squad, once (if) he clears waivers.
The Panthers have cut their roster down to 53 men.
Of their 10 draft picks in 2010, Carolina kept nine, only releasing cornerback R.J. Stanford. Also making it past the final round of cuts were wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett, defensive tackle Nick Hayden, and newly-signed offensive guard Tim Duckworth.
