Panthers Finally Annouce Cuts

The Associated press reports:

The Carolina Panthers began shedding veteran players to clear salary-cap space Wednesday, releasing receiver D.J. Hackett, offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges and running back Nick Goings. The moves combine to save more than $4 million as the Panthers scramble to get under the $123 million cap before the start of free agency on Friday.

No surprise Hackett was cut but I am very surprised they released the versatile OL Jeremy Bridges. I wonder if all the trouble he kept getting into off the field finally influenced the Panthers to part ways. Goings has been an adequate back-up for years but I bet age and the fact 2008 practice squad player Decori Birmingham looked real good in TC last year. Why not let the kid move up?
