Near 1,000 freaking comments on the first thread... I love you guys. So let's keep this train of hearbreak a-rollin'
Here we are. By the end of today we'll know who make up the 2012 Carolina Panthers, and which players will be left to search for greener pastures. Teams have until 9PM EDT to submit their cuts to the league office, though this is more a battle against East-Coast bias, than teams on the Atlantic really needing that long to make their decisions.
The advent of Twitter has changed the complexion of cut day. Eric Norwood announced his own departure from the organization earlier in the week, and I expect we'll get several of the 22 cuts made public over the service today. So stay here, kick back, and relax while we keep you updated with all the cuts as they happen.
On Monday it was the aforementioned Norwood who was arguably the most surprising cut, and he was joined by R.J. Stanford today, but there's a chance he could be joined by another thee members of his 2010 draft class with Jimmy Clausen, Armanti Edwards, and Jordan Pugh all in tenuous positions. This could potentially leave the Panthers with just three of their draft picks two-years removed; anyone need any more evidence why a lame-duck season isn't a good idea?
3:55 PM- WR Jared Green waived
- The plan will be to have him return to the PS if (when) he clears waivers.
3:42 PM- CB Darius Butler cut, per Pro Football Talk
- Let the fun begin! As it stands with Butler and Stanford cut the Panthers only have 4 CBs on the roster– Gamble, Norman, Munnerlyn, and Thomas. They're making a move here, we just don't know what it is yet.
- The ST ace will help a terrible unit.
