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.

    • lol like funchess needs to worry about celebrating
    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
