Panthers make official roster moves
By Pat Yasinskas
We mentioned some Carolina transactions in the earlier item on the Saints releasing defensive end Alex Brown. But the Panthers just sent out their official list of transactions, so let’s get them all on the record for posterity.
The Panthers reached an injury settlement with quarterback Tony Pike. They also waived (injured) guard Duke Robinson and released long-snapper Chris Massey.
The Panthers also placed tight end Gary Barnidge, guard Geoff Schwartz, center Zack Williams and receiver David Gettis on the injured reserve list. That puts the roster at 80 players. The Panthers and the rest of the league have until Saturday evening to get down to 53 players.
