Carolina Panthers release Armanti Edwards, according to report

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

After three years the plug has been pulled.

Armanti Edwards has been released by the Carolina Panthers, according to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports.

Edwards was selected in the third round of the 2010 draft via trade with New England. His selection will be remembered as one of the most foolish moves in franchise history as the Panthers took a small-school quarterback with the desire to make him a wide receiver during a lame duck season. Carolina gave up the first pick in the second round of the 2011 draft, with a new coaching staff installed that had no loyalty to Edwards.

The release is disappointing news for Edwards and Appalachian State fans, but it may give him an opportunity to find a place as a quarterback -- though that seems like a long shot. His best move would be to try to re-establish himself in the CFL, and see if he could back-door his way into the league.

Edwards finishes his three-year career in Carolina with 5 receptions for 121 yards, he did not score a touchdown.
