Butt bumps all around! - Grant Halverson
There are still some moves to be made, and some cast-offs from other teams who could be added -- but here is the final 53 to begin the season for the Carolina Panthers.
The cuts are now in, and we have the final 53 man roster available to us. There were a few surprises today, and some moves don't make a lot of sense immediately. Here's hoping some additions are made in the secondary and offensive line, because the depth is ugly.
Positions are taken from Panthers.com. If you have an issue with how a player is listed, take it up with the organization.
