Final Panthers Cuts

Recommended Posts

The Carolina Panthers must get down to 53 players by Saturday at 4pm. 

There are a few large question marks still regarding the final roster. Ron Rivera has said 9 positions are up for grabs, more than any season in recent memory. 

I suspect we will see Brian Folkerts waived and then put on IR. I thought Mike Remmers did well at center and rookie Daryl Williams did well at RT, making Folkerts expendable. 

Also will be interesting to see how the running backs shake out. My fear is they keep Fozzy over Wegher, which is a mistake, imo. Fozzy would clear waivers and is still practice squad eligible. Wegher I feel would be snatched up by any number of teams looking for a young healthy back (Texans, Chiefs, Steelers, etc). 

Over at tight end, Simonson has looked sure handed in pass catching, but dismal in run blocking. Brandon Williams will probably get the final tight end roster spot with Marcus Lucas again a practice squad project. 

On the defensive side, has Rakim Cox done enough in preseason to get a jersey? Does David Gettleman cut his first draft pick in David Mayo? 

We will know soon enough. 

As a reminder, the Panthers roster on Sunday probably will not be the final 53. Typically roster moves are still made into week 1 of the NFL. Bubble players typically continue to get cut on Mondays and Tuesdays as free agents are signed.

By the way, something lost in the shuffle last night that I didn't see posted anywhere here is Melvin White and the Panthers agreed to an injury settlement. He's not on our IR.

Wasn't it Marlowe?

I thought it was, Marlowe lost his block on the right. Not sure if his man was the one that got to the ball. Then people on twitter corrected me saying it was Whitaker.

Still hope he makes the roster. We need a legit starter at both S spots.

Nice! I feel like I was just gifted 24 hours. I thought cuts had to be mad by Sunday not Saturday. Nice way to start the morning.

there are some tough decisions coming and the final roster should be a pretty solid 53. I don't envy the personnel decisions coming even if I do envy the paychecks of the people making those decisions.

Imagine playing your heart out last night... Hitting people, taking hits.. And probably having a decent showing.  

 

Got up this morning... So sore you could bareky walk to take a piss.  

... Then you get cut. 

 

Thoughts and prayers to those who gave their all and didnt make it. You guys are destined to do great things somewhere else in life.

Marlowe whiffed badly on a block on the right. Fozzy was heading up field already to cover the receiver.

I should know better than to listen to twitter folk.

Just wish we were in a position to let Stewart go or trade him.  Hurney has us screwed. Love all the quick backs

Heath had a tough night as did Byrd.  We are deep at LB. 

When you are young as we are, many guys with potential will sadly have to go.  As Zod said, Folkerts might be history
