Panthers cut 3 players, acquire Louis Leonard

UPDATE: DB Nate Salley has been placed on injured reserve. Also, rookie DT Lonnie Harvey has been released, leaving the Panthers with 75 roster spots as required by the league. The final 22 cuts will take place on Saturday, according to the Charlotte Observer.

The Panthers made their first roster cuts of the season yesterday when they released three players and placed one on injured reserve. They have to make one more cut today to have the roster at the NFL-mandated 75 man limit.

The players who have been cut are:

WR Ryne Robinson
DT Lorenzo Williams
OT Gerald Cadogan
OG C.J. Davis (IR)

Aside from cutting players from the roster, the Panthers gained some defensive line help today by trading an undisclosed draft pick to Cleveland for DT Louis Leonard.

Leonard has 3 years experience in the league and will hopefully help fill the void that has been left with the absence of injured DT Ma’ake Kemoeatu, who will miss the entire season after rupturing his achilles on the first day of training camp.

The addition of Leonard means there are still two players that have to be cut by today’s deadline. The Panthers will have a 75 man roster for the final preseason game, and the final roster cut to 53 players will take place sometime next week.

I will give an update when it is known who else has been cut from the roster.

    I was looking at some of the Browns cuts…I had to check and make sure they didn't cut Edwards' hands off!

    Maybe if they cut his hands off and gave him prosthetic ones with glue on them, he might not drop as many balls in the endzone.

    For Braylon's sake I hope he does. I think if he has another down year Beeze might hunt him down and chop his hands off.
