The Panthers released tight end Seth DeValve today citing a non-football injury, a league source told ESPN's Field Yates. DeValve was a fourth-round pick out of Princeton by the Cleveland Browns in 2016. He was with Jacksonville last year and signed by Carolina in March. While with Cleveland in 2017, DeValve became the first white player to kneel during the national anthem to protest social injustice.

SETH DEVALVETE, UNSIGNED FREE AGENT

Panthers released TE Seth DeValve.

Cleveland's fourth-round pick in 2016, Carolina released DeValve with an undisclosed non-football injury only a few months into the 27-year-old's contract. A part-time player with the Jaguars (12/140) last year, it will admittedly be tough for DeValve to latch on anywhere until facilities re-open to players. Expect him to sign elsewhere later this summer

Wow our TE rank is really thin.  I figured DeValve would be competing with Chris Manhertz for TE2.

I expect with this new cap money we may bring in someone to compete for the starter or primary backup role.  Right now TE is our weakest spot.

What about Charles Clay?  It wasn't too long ago he was on a roll with the Bills.

Here's Clay's numbers.  He was productive until the last couple of years.  Probably not a good fit in his one year with the Cardinals.  Not sure what happened his last season in Buffalo, though.

Non football injury...white guy getting released during protests....wonder if there’s more to it. Probably not but timing is at least interesting

I tend to think of "non football injuries" as generally being minor (especially with a decent amount of time to heal before camp) but I haven't seen any more specific information.

Maybe they've just decided he's nothing special or perhaps there's somebody else they like better and they're dumping him to make room.

A bubble player having a non football injury would kinda seal the deal on getting cut

O.J. Howard please

I thought the Bucs decided to take him off the trading block?  But yeah, while not quite living up to his potential, still MUCH better than anything we have currently.  I still believe Ian Thomas is a TE2 based off abilities, but due our situation, he will be the TE1 unless something changes.

Delanie Walker (old), Jordan Reed (oft injured) and Ed Dickson (old) are available..

Question is: are we rolling with Ian as our starter and looking for a vet backup OR are we looking for a starting calibre TE?
