Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen Not Among Final Roster Cuts
The Carolina Panthers cut 22 players on Friday to get to the NFL-mandated 53-player roster limit for the regular season.
It wasn’t a surprise, but the Panthers also kept Jimmy Clausen as their third quarterback despite some struggles in the preseason. “That’s a position that you want depth,” GM Mark Hurney said. “We like the quarterback room we have right now and they all get along very well. It’s a position we’ve struggled with in the past and anytime you have three guys you’re happy with, that’s a big plus.”
Among the notable cuts were safety Reggie Smith, who was signed earlier this offseason as a free agent and wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu, who had worked as the No. 3 receiver for most of training camp.
Carolina also cut Darius Butler, the team’s third cornerback last year, and a former second-round draft pick by New England.
The other cuts included wide receivers Jared Green and LaMont Bryant, running backs Tauren Poole and Armond Smith, tight ends Nelson Rosario and Joe Jon Finley, offensive linemen Bryant Browning, Matt Reynolds, Zack Williams and Justin Wells, defensive linemen Ryan Van Bergen, Nate Chandler and Ogemdi Nwagbuo, linebackers Jason Williams, David Nixon and Kion Wilson, safeties Jordan Pugh and Jonathan Nelson and cornerback R.J. Stanford.
