Waiting on Panthers, Saints and Bucs
By Pat Yasinskas
Just a quick note to let you know we’re still waiting on official announcements from the New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and -- to a lesser degree -- the Carolina Panthers on what moves they have made to get down their rosters down to 53 players.
As of the moment, the Atlanta Falcons are the only NFC South team to announce their roster moves. I’ll bring you our cutdown analysis on the Saints and Buccaneers as soon as their moves are announced.
The Panthers did something I’ve never seen before. They made a partial announcement. The team said it has waived receiver Seyi Ajirotutu, cornerback Darius Butler, receiver Jared Green, linebacker David Nixon, defensive tackle Ogemdi Nwagbuo, running back Tauren Poole, offensive tackle Matt Reynolds, cornerback R.J. Stanford, defensive lineman Ryan Van Bergen and linebacker Kion Wilson.
The Panthers still have to clear 12 more roster spots.
A few other items worth noting as we wait (and wait):
Joseph Person reports that Carolina wide receiver Armanti Edwards will make it through this round of cuts.
Stephen Holder reports that Tampa Bay receiver Tiquan Underwood has been told he’s being released.
Mike Triplett reports that it appears as if New Orleans undrafted running back Travaris Cadet will make the roster.
