I mean, that's the grand question. Why would The Panthers cut their best pass rusher this preseason over Roh... and keep around Fua. I don't get it. Furthermore, how many snaps did Nzegwu play the other night? I think only saw him on 3-4 snaps.

 

 

Probably didn't play well enough in practice to get a high amount of snaps, either that or Roh and the other players provide more versatility over Nzegwu. ST play, multiple positions....ext...

I don't buy that. If that were true, Fua would have gotten only one snap this entire preseason. Regardless, Nzegwu was by far the superior pass rusher. So I don't see how this cut makes sense over Roh (who has been decent but a complete non-factor at times).

TIL players on IR still count against the salary cap. Give them there injury settlements and let them go.

Not fully. I believe it's only half their salary.

If that clause is included in the contract. It is an optional clause. Either way, every penny counts for a few seasons.

It was expected. Pilares was as good as gone as soon as Adams was brought in. Gettis producing only sealed his fate.

I just can't agree with getting rid of zordich. Dudes gonna be a baller next year. The other two I could care less about although I wish them the best.

Just looked it up, you're right, it is a clause usually included in UDFA an late round picks contracts.

Just because we do not retain them, doesn't mean we can't bring them in next year. I am assuming we have the same chances as everyone else
