2013 Carolina Panthers cuts: Thomas Keiser and Damario Jeffrey waived

The Panthers are starting to cut down in preparation for Spartanburg.

The Carolina Panthers begun trimming their roster Monday morning after seeing their rookies in Charlotte this weekend. Already there have been two defensive releases, as both Thomas Keiser and Damario Jeffrey made it known they were leaving via twitter.

Keiser is shocking because of his production in 2011, and flashes in 2012.


Not every move the team makes will be gold, and this one reeks of shortsightedness. It's easy to forget he was more productive that Greg Hardy in 2011, and a valuable rotational pass rusher. It's a hard sell that Keiser is any worse than the UDFA's they brought in, or fringe guys like Mario Addison. Someone will sign Keider, and they're getting a great player.

Damario Jeffrey was a little easier to swallow, only because he didn't really have a role in the defense.

You have to figure they had good reasons to let Keiser go.  It wasn't as if they had to do it with so many going to camp.  There must be something they know we don't.

I think Gettleman is looking to get bigger and stronger on the Dline....maybe looking for a different type of DE.

 

We have CJ, Hardy, and Alexander as the core rotation. 

 

I thought Keiser was a solid role guy as well....interesting to see where we go from here.

 

But, there is one thing for sure.....Gettleman knows DLine.  So, I trust him.

Would be interesting to know why. Keiser was great depth. Maybe they see something in some of the other guys. Weird move.

Weird. It was either Gettleman or Rivera who tipped this off earlier. They were mentioning our d-line rotation and mentioned Mario Addison but left Keiser out. Not sure if it was a press conference or interview on wfnz but I think it was Gettleman who was talking about the rotation and mentioned everyone but Keiser including Addison and even Fua.

this.

 

we should expect to see more favorites cut in the near future...guys we think have a lot of potential or who have done some good things in the past.

 

it could be be he just doesn't fit the mold of the big DE they want on the line. it could be that he wasn't recovering from his injury as they hoped. it could be they really liked one of the guys they saw this past weekend.

 

it could be any number of reasons, but gettleman knows what he likes for the team and apparently he didn't like what he was seeing in keiser. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt here.

He literally had one of the lowest cap hits on the team.

 

So I doubt that's the reason. Had to go back and look but he was put on I.R. last year on week 12 with torn ligaments in his elbow. Not sure if the injury is what did him in, but as of now it looks like the main reason.
