Which potential roster cut candidates could the Carolina Panthers potentially target following training camp in 2021?

Teams across the country are currently in the final stages of preparation ahead of training camp, which is the biggest and most important part of the offseason practice period before the 2021 season gets underway.

The Carolina Panthers are making a triumphant return to Wofford College in Spartanburg this summer, which should be immensely interesting and another step in the return to normality after COVID-19 put a severe dent in preparations last offseason.

Matt Rhule’s roster looks hungry for success.

It’s been a busy offseason trying to improve almost every positional group. A strong camp and progress during preseason games should stand them in good stead ahead of their Week 1 outing against the New York Jets.

Carolina Panthers could look to the waiver wire after final cuts are made.

Of course, there is always the possibility of the Panthers bringing in additional reinforcements off the waiver wire when veterans are inevitably shown the door as teams decide on their 53-man rosters.

With this in mind, which potential cut candidates across the league could potentially interest the Panthers should the opportunity arise?

Ty Sambrailo – OT

  • Current team – Tennessee Titans

One thing the Carolina Panthers love in their new recruits is versatility. This has formed a key component within their recruitment process since Matt Rhule arrived and Ty Sambrailo has a lot of traits the team’s gone for in recent months.

Sambrailo can operate at either tackle position and will probably fight it out with second-round pick Dillon Radunz on the right-hand side. The Tennessee Titans didn’t select the North Dakota State product to sit on the sidelines, which means the veteran could be surplus to requirements when it’s all said and done.

Releasing Sambrailo would come with a dead-cap figure of $750,000, which is far more appealing than parting ways with someone like Kendall Lamm – which would cost the Titans $3 million.
