Carolina Panthers Finalize Practice Squad Roster

On Monday, the Carolina Panthers finalized the practice squad roster. Six guys return from the waiver list and Carolina also brought in two new offensive linemen off of other teams’ waiver wires.

The roster is comprised of running back Josh Vaughan, cornerback R.J. Stanford, wide receiver Trent Guy, fullback Rashawn Jackson, linebacker Sean Ware, and defensive tackle Corvey Irvin. The team’s newcomers are offensive guards Shawn Murphy and Dan Santucci.

Murphy was a fourth-round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins in 2008, while Santucci was a seventh-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals in in 2009.

    I am a bit surprised they didn’t ask Cantwell back. But with 4 QBs on the roster(of course technically Armanti is a WR but in a pinch)I guess they felt they could spend the spot elsewhere. Not really surprised by anyone else they brought back.

    • Eric Quackenbush

      I was surprised they released Cantwell, just based on how popular he was with the coaching staff with his arm strength. However, I was pleased — perhaps overly-pleased — with the decision to keep Tony Pike in lieu of Cantwell.

      I was kind of surprised with the decision to retain Nick Hayden and let go of Tank Tyler.

      • John

        Yeah Tank was the surprising cut but I think they cut him for Neblett not Hayden per se, although I guess it’s a bit moot as to who got “his” spot. Certainly wasn’t a youth thing as Tyler is only 25. He just didn’t show much preseason and he wasn’t really a Meeks type of player. A little slow maybe?

  • J. Gore

    Yeah I don’t know who was kept over who but if they wanted to keep Neblett they should have let Hayden go not Tank. I still think Kenny Moore should have made the team. I hope they got a real good reason for keeping Jarrett on the roster again. I’ve heard about the good camp but I didn’t see it translate to the field in preseason. One play for about 20-25yds that any NFL receiver should catch does not a #2 receiver make. (No fault of DJ’s but the play was called back.) I saw Kenneth Moore make at least 3 awesome plays for big yardage. But the only excuse I hear from the Coaches are that they feel like he’s reached his plateau. Wow. All I can say is for the guy that doesn’t have to be open to be open is Dude you better figure out how to get open. Also hello again John and Eric. It’s good to be back. Couldn’t get online the last few weeks. GO PANTHERS!!

      Most people are scrambling to be among the first to “break” the news. I try to lay back and get it right so that I don’t have to come back later and do the job twice. :-)
