Here's the Panthers first 2016 season practice squad, courtesy of David Newton:
Let's first start with a convo about some players not on the practice squad.
For instance the Panthers elected to add Jalen Simmons and not Brandon Wegher as Newton points out. My guess is that the Panthers didn't see the growth in him as a player as compared to what Cameron Artis-Payne showed. That just might be bad luck on Wegher's part, being a rookie UDFA at a position the team drafted a player at. I'm betting Wegher gets another shot somewhere.
No Marcus Lucas on the practice squad? Though Lucas came from the 2014 draft I don't think he's played in any games. I guess with Sandland already there they couldn't fit him. I hope to see him back at some point, he has potential.
I'm sad to see Lou Young not on the practice squad. It's the Homerism in me though. Young was given a solid chance to win a job in the secondary and he obviously didn't do enough. I wish him luck going forward.
