Hat tip to Philipkcks for being the first to post on this in a previous comment thread on CSR.
Via the Panthers Twitter:
The #Panthers have waived the following players: QB Cameron, P Gay, CB Hixson, K Lineberry, WR Moss, DE Nzegwu, LB Rau, S Silva, G Wells— Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) August 24, 2013
The only one of those cuts that is a little confusing is DE Nzegwu who had a good camp and preseason. Otherwise those are some easy cuts. But we have a few more:
OT Bruce Campbell, WR Kealoha Pilares, and FB Michael Zordich have been waived/injured.— Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) August 24, 2013
I'm surprised they waived Campbell given he was hurt but I guess they had really seen enough of him anyway and are simply ready to move on. Obviously cutting Pilares is the biggest surprise so far though given the depth at WR and the fact he had failed to distinguish himself in any way makes it less surprising.
In other news Rivera finally admits the Panthes need help on the o-line:
Rivera says team will determine if they will look outside the organization for help on the O-line after Thursday's game vs. Steelers.— Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) August 24, 2013
Obviously the answer is not on the roster. We need to bring in a couple guys I would say.
We have some good news on players returning to practice:
