Fua was moved from defensive tackle after three seasons of underwhelming performance that prompted the team to switch him to offensive guard in a flailing attempt to find a use for him after he was obsolete on defense.
In related news I used a cinder block to prop up a broken couch one time.
There's no indication how the Panthers will use the open roster spot, but it's likely the team will use it on someone who has played offensive line for more than a week or potentially more help at defensive back. No, that isn't code for "Ed Reed," so don't ask.
Fua's release makes Cam Newton the last remaining member of the 2011 draft class. Let that sink in. It's been three years and one player out of eight remains on the roster.
