2013 Carolina Panthers roster cuts: Panthers cut DT Sione Fua

USA TODAY Sports

The Panthers have parted ways with the former 3rd round pick.

The Panthers continue their quest to get the roster down to 53 players by releasing former 3rd round DT Sione Fua.

Fua was a huge disappointment after being drafted out of Stanford, accumulating just 22 tackles without a sack in his two years on the roster. After double-dipping at DT in the draft this past April with Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short, the Panthers just didn't have the room for an underperforming DT on the depth chart.

Now that Fua is no longer on the roster the sad realization that the Panthers' 2011 draft was a complete and utter disaster is realized, as 1st round (and #1 overall) pick Cam Newton is the only player remaining on the roster from that draft. Thankfully, he will be here for quite a while.

Stay tuned to CSR as we continue to update the Panthers' roster cuts.
