Shockingly the Carolina Panthers have just cut three defensive tackles, Nick Hayden, Corvey Irvin and Deljuan Robinson while keeping only Terrell McClain, Sione Fua and Andre Neblett. There's no surprise the Panthers were looking to make serious moves to bolster the position, but shocking they would cut as many at the weakest position on the field. The silver lining is that this means the Panthers will likely look to bring in at least two DTs from cuts today.
In recent days the organization has been linked to Pat Williams formerly of the Minnesota Vikings, however, due to his involvement in the Starcaps case he will be forced to miss the first two weeks of the season due to suspension. In addition to Williams there are several valuable players who are likely to be cut today as Hurney plays his cards close to his chest.
Most surprising of the cuts is former 3rd round pick Corvey Irvin who the team were starting during the preseason next to Fua, however it looks like the team feel about the under tackles much the same way I do as both Hayden and Irvin filled that role.
It looks like it's going to be a busy day today in Charlotte.
